(Video) Brazil Under-17s Literally Stop Playing During 4-1 Defeat To USA

Posted by

Final five minutes were a standstill.Brazil’s under-17 side have a lot to learn if they hope to emulate their heroes in the full national team after a disgraceful display of bad sportsmanship earlier this week saw them just stop playing in a game against the United States with five minutes left on the clock.

At 4-1 down, and with just nine men on the field, the junior Selecao didn’t fancy seeing the job through to the end and brought the game to a standstill with five minutes to go, much to the confusion of their North American counterparts.

The American number six then just stood with his foot on the ball and allowed time to tick down, and the referee brought proceedings to a close on 89 minutes.
