A Soccer Player Got Attacked by a Rival Fan, then Scored the Winning Goal

A British soccer player named Jack Grealish was attacked by a rival fan, who ran onto the field, came up behind him, and appeared to PUNCH him.

The incident occurred in the 10th minute of Sunday's Sky Bet Championship match at St Andrew's, with Grealish running away with his back to the assailant.

The fan was quickly pulled away by other players, and security removed him.  Grealish got his revenge by scoring the winning goal about 45 minutes later.
