US international winger Alejandro Bedoya decided to test his girlfriend’s mettle when she requested that the pair “play for real” during a recent kick-around on their local park.

Mercifully, Bea then jokingly confirmed that she’d managed to survive the forceful lunge without suffering any major damage…
A couple missing teeth, nearly a broken ankle and still wiping dirt off face. But the laughs were worth it, haha… https://t.co/iHYaSQC1VV

As the old saying goes: The couple that goes careering into slide tackles together, stays together.
