Mexico would eventually win their quarter-final clash (after extra time) 4-2 against Senegal today, but amidst all the goals, Papa Souare’s Bruce Lee impression in the second-half certainly stood out.

The left wing-back launched himself at Mexico’s Hector Herrera, kicking the defender right in the gob. However, referee Mark Clattenburg (not helped by his assistant) decided only to book the loony Souare. An appalling decision, but the kind of error we in the UK are well used to from the Durham-born official.

Watch the assault here. Apologies for the poor quality of the video, by the way. We’ll update it with a better one when we find it. Oh, and apologies for the commentary of Mark Bright. Because he is shite.
