Watch: The Incredible Moment A Player Uses A Corner Flag As A Spear

Watch: The Incredible Moment A Player Uses A Corner Flag As A Spear

In a week of crazy football fights in South America, the latest absurdity comes form Ecuador during a Under 20 Copa Libertadores semi-final game between Independiente del Valle and River Plate (the Uruguayan side, not the ones from Argentina).

Angelo Preciado, who plays for Independiente, felt threatened by the opposition players as things kicked off in the middle of the game.

Pretty much the whole of the River Plate team were hunting after him, and in a desperate attempt to defend himself, he trotted over to the corner flag, picked it up and started using it as a spear and poking it at anyone who came near him. As you do.

Eventually, a teammate took the pole off the Ecuadorian and it was thrown over the advertising boardings.

The 20-year old, who represented his country at the Under 20 World Cup last year, has previously declared his dream of playing for Manchester City (apparently he grew up idolising City legend and Ecuadorian international Felipe Caicedo).

But footage of him practicing his audition for the movie '300' probably isn't going to get him a big move anytime soon. CONMEBOL are expected to punish those involved in the fracas.

The Incredible Moment A Ligue One Referee Kicked Out At Player And Then Sent Him Off

published at3 days ago

Another shocking incident in South American football this week saw a player jump on top of a ball boy and unleash a flurry of punches on him after he celebrated the winning goal.

In Sunday's Campeonato Sul-Mato-Grossense game between Operaio and Comercial, Operaio player Jefferson Reis was incensed by the manner in which a ball boy celebrated.

TV cameras captured him unleashing a violent attack on the ball boy, believed to be a Comercial youth player, with Reis repeatedly punching the youngster in the face in a truly disgusting act.

Players ran over to intervene, with things escalating to the point riot police stepped in. The ball boy was seen with blood pouring from his nose as a result of the assault.

Reis was then deservedly sacked by his club for his disgraceful actions.
