(Video) Barcelona keeper plays dead to avoid red card

It’s a shame for Barcelona Sporting Club keeper Maximo Banguera that the Oscars were last month, because he put on a hell of an act pretending to be knocked out to avoid getting sent off in the Copa Libertadores.

The Ecuardorian Primera A keeper rushed from his line and was almost half way up the pitch when he dived into a tackle with a striker from Colombian side Atletico Nacional.

Suffice to say it was the wrong choice.

Banguera was certain of a red card at a crucial period in the game, with the clock just hitting the 90th minute and the score tied at 1-1.

So instead of accepting his punishment, the keeper decided he might get away with the foul if he pretended to be unconscious.

The consequences were hilarious! See the video below:
