In which, during Thursday evening’s Brazilian youth fixture between Novo Hamburgo and Internacional, Novo centre-back Luis Henrique follows through a defensive clearance by callously planting his studs into Raphinha’s chest, thus poleaxing the Inter striker.

Not that the referee gave a flying fudgecake about it, with Henrique not even conceding so much as a foul for stamping on his opponent’s heart, let alone a red card…

We suppose it’s the kind of thing Raphinha needs to start getting used to now if he wants to carve himself out a career in the Brazilian leagues.
