Killing through eye poking wound

Hi, guys:
(First, please excuse my poor English; it is not my primary language.)
I must warn you; this is a bit gruesome. This is the thing:
I am writing a fighting scene in a late medieval setting. The main character uses his thumbs to poke into the eyes of an enemy, killing him.
He wore a full plate armor, with steel gauntlets. The idea is to break the eye sockets and cause internal bleeding and brain damage.
Do you think it is plausible?

My search terms were: eye-gouging, eye-gouging with thumbs, eye socket, eye poking kill.

Thanks in advance and greetings from Spain!
