[VIDEO PICK: Off the Post] A Diego Alvez shot to the chops forces David Luiz to seek medical attention during a win by Brazil in a friendly on Thursday.

Brazil beat Iraq on Thursday in Sweden, 6-0, in what was cleary a bigger mismatch than the U.S. armed forces vs. the Iraqi army. Oscar, Neymar, Hulk and Lucas all had goals. Kaka also score, in his first appearance for the Selecao in over two years, and was praised for his strong play by his teammates.

The goals were nice, but it's not every day you see a keeper do this kind of damage to his own teammate, even when it's unintentional, especially not one, like Luiz, who looks like a taller version of Sideshow Bob from the Simpsons.

Alvez, the No. 1 for Valencia in Spain, makes quite an impression in only his fifth national team appearance. He registers a shutout, takes out a Chelsea defender with flowing locks, and then fails to even feign remorse.
