VIDEO: Alvaro Morata straight-up Roy Keaned an unsuspecting linesman in Toulouse

Alvaro Morata doesn't mess about.

Whether you're an opponent, an official or an innocent old lady simply walking to the post box then Alvaro Morata is going to test the durability of your shins.

On this occasion it was a linesman who felt the full force of the Juventus striker who held nothing back as he tried to keep the ball in play from a wayward Juanfran pass.

The "challenge"Β took place in the opening minutes of Spain's Group D opener against the Czech Republic and, to be fair to the official, he jumped straight back up to his feet.

If the tackle had been on a Czech player, though, Morata may well have been lucky not to see red.

As for the linesman, well, we expect a few close offside decisions to go against the Morata this afternoon.
