In which Argentinos Juniors midfielder Gaspar Iniguez makes an astoundingly poor decision to attempt to slide tackle Boca Juniors’ Cristian Erbes using nothing but his face, resulting in the 19-year-old having to have his front three teeth removed…

Definite shades of John Terry there. Horrific, blood-smeared stains. To make matters worse, Iniguez was duly booked for going in headfirst.

As my old man would say: they’re not all locked up.
