Taking their role as the 12th man a little too seriously, here we see Gremio fans attempting to distract their opposing goalkeeper not with jeers, whistles or a hearty chorus of “you fat bastard”, but by firing fireworks directly at him…
Decent of the referee to disallow the goal, we thought. Good to see sportsmanship is alive and well in Brazilian football.
Gremio are top of the Campeonato Gaúcho at the moment, so their fans’ intimidation tactics are obviously working a treat.
That said, it’s all fun and games until someone loses their face in a horrific incendiary assault.
