Israeli midfielder Rafi Dahan will probably have to postpone his wedding after a horrific tackle by Maccabi Haifa's Ruben Rayos.

In Sunday's Israeli Premier League game between Bnei Yehuda and Maccabi Haifa, Rayos slammed into Dahan with a two-footed tackle, leaving him on the ground in excruciating pain.

Dahan's wedding is only three weeks away.

Bnei Yehuda were leading 2-1 at the time, but Maccabi Haifa managed to score in the 96th minute of injury time, leaving a final score of 2-2.

Rayos tried to end my career I will never forgive what he did to me. It's a crime, the midfielder said.

Rayos, a former Barcelona B player, was sent off the field after the foul and is likely to face a long ban. Dahan, meanwhile, is looking at a long time off the pitch due to his injury.
