Things got a tad ugly at the tail end of last night’s Copa America group tie between Brazil and Colombia, with Neymar and Carlos Bacca both being administered with post-match red cards after an entirely silly mini-skirmish broke out after the final whistle.

Colombia managed to win the scrappy game 1-0; the first time they’ve beaten Brazil since 1991.

Anyway, all the real action took place afterwards as Neymar was shown his red first for petulantly hoofing a ball at his old nemesis Pablo Armero in frustration, a shot to the back that the Colombian defender took with both grace and dignity.

The obligatory ‘hardman’ nuzzle-fest then broke out, with Bacca charging in and shoving Neymar into the middle of next week and thus pick up a red card of his very own…

Like bloody children, the lot of ’em.

That Armero dive again, for posterity’s sake…

First class.

    The football has generally been a bit shit, and then there’s all the theatrics. Why do we watch this crap.

  2. xAave says:

    Because it includes everything about life.

  3. thrillhou says:

    Quite dissapointed there wasn’t any flying kicks.

  4. Maria says:

    Amero should get a fine/ suspension as well for clear simulation. Had that been a shot on goal during the game, or a direct free kick with him in the wall he wouldn’t have rolled about so pathetically.

    If you don’t punish this behaviour, it won’t stop.
