A Hong Kong youth match turned violent when one player from the English Schools Foundation Lions team was captured on video kicking a 12-year-old playing for Kitchee Escola team in the head during the game.
Police arrested the 10-year-old ESF player this past week and then released him on bail.
Go to the 1:30 mark in the video below and you will see the Kitchee player make a bad tackle. While he is on the ground, an ESF Lions player ignores the ball and kicks the opponent in the head.

The London Daily Telegraph reports:
While the older boy did not suffer a serious injury, his parents filed a police complaint. On Monday, the ten-year-old was released on bail. “I understand that the parent of the injured child has referred the matter to the police and we will cooperate fully with any police investigation,” said the head of Hong Kong’s English Schools Foundation (ESF) in a letter to parents.
