(Video) Crazy Brazilian Physio Runs Onto Pitch To Stop Opposition Player From Equalising

Crazed physio makes goal-saving slide-tackle!

Check-in to Arsenal vs Chelsea!

In the modern game, having a good physio is regarded as a crucial part of any successful team. Duties include administering the magic spray, speedily bandaging head-wounds and holding noses during nasty bleeds.

What they are not expected to do is sprint onto the pitch and slide tackle the opposition striker, as happened in the Mato Grosso do Sul State Championship game in Brazil last weekend between Coxim and Ponta Pora.

With Ponta Pora leading by a goal to nil, their physio decided to take matters into his own hands, running on to the pitch to make sure Coxim didn’t equalise during a promising attack…we wonder what the referee decided to do.
