During Santos’ Copa Libertadores group game with Colo Colo last night, prissy wunder-starlet-kind and semi-professional cockatoo impersonator Neymar jinked his way through the area to put his side 3-0 up then celebrated the goal by donning a discarded mask of his own face.

The referee was suitably unimpressed and booked the striker for an illegal celebration, a booking which just so happened to be his second of the game…


For the record, Santos went on to win 3-2, with a further four red cards (two for each side) shown before the final whistle – though whether or not they were all for other mask-related infringements is yet to be confirmed.
