This is really cheeky. Really cheeky. This makes Suarez vs Ghana at World Cup 2010 look positively sporting…
We doubt you’ll see a more bizarre football video all week.
In this Argentinian lower-league game between San Martin and Bell Ville, one of the substitutes sprints onto the pitch and prevents a certain goal with a fine acrobatic diving save!
Naturally, the attacking team are outraged but, as the fleeing sub sprints out of the picture to avoid capture, the referee refuses to award the goal – or even a penalty – and instead awards an indirect free-kick from just inside the box.
Needless to say the defensive side get away with it and so, presumably, did the mischievous sub.
