Equatorial Guinea’s Inept ‘Handball’ Defender Bruna Takes ‘Man Marking’ Far Too Literally (Video)

By Chris Wright

Remember Bruna? The Equitorial Guinea Women defender who got away scot-free despite having caught the ball in the middle of a crowded penalty area against Australia a couple of days ago?

Let’s face it, who could forget? Anyway, during Guinea’s game against Brazil yesterday, Bruna once again lent further credence to the theory that she has absolutely no clue what she’s doing – taking her instructions to (wo)man-mark Marta a little too literally…


Bruna then set about cementing her position as the worst player at the tournament by scything down Marta in the area as the game entered it’s final few seconds, thus allowing Cristiane to score her second and Brazil’s third unanswered goal of the evening.

    she really is just embarrassing

  2. João says:

    I don’t know if she understands Portuguese, but if she does, I would have done the same…

  3. CFC_Jay says:

    ok, she may very well be the worst player in the tournament, but that Marta is a pretty damn good player and in all fairness the tactic of literally (Wo)-man marking her is very good in principle………….though Bruna really shouldnt be the one doing it!!

  4. Colin says:

    Joao, what was said?

  5. Dosotros says:

    With all due respect, she’s just a dumb black woman. Those man marking tactics are borderline infancy level skills.

  6. Matt says:

    Are you kidding me? That’s exactly how you do it…she was so far in Marta’s head at that point of the game that it would have taken a Chilean mine rescue team to get her out.

    “Chilean mine rescue team”. Good one, honestly made me chuckle…

  8. Nuno says:

    What Joao ment was that, if she understood portuguese, she could have heard what the manager was saying to Marta. Sadly, I don’t think that was the case..

    Marking/stalking, thin line.

  11. Oz says:

    My comment is awaiting moderation. Meanwhile some knob calls her “Just a dumb black woman”.

    What the fuck are you actually moderating?

  12. pop says:

    according to wikipedia Bruna plays in Brazil and is probably one of the players who got naturalized to play for e. guinea, so she probably understands portuguese.

    and please stop it with the racism
