Realising they had a mountain to climb, fourth-tier Sacachispas decided to assemble their very own Justice League in a bid to knock Primera Division side Arsenal de Sarandi out of the Copa Argentina.

Having raided the local party shop beforehand, Sacachispas’ players lined up for their customary pre-match photo while wearing a variety of different superhero masks, from Iron Man to the Incredible Hulk.

Rather incredibly, the team in fancy dress went on to pull off the shock result of the round.

A goal from Batman (or possibly Darth Vader, or maybe Predator) ensued the game finished 1-1 after 120 minutes, only for Sacachispas to plunder a 6-5 victory in the subsequent penalty shoot-out.

Given the result, Pies would suggest that they make a habit of dressing up before matches – but alas, it appears this is hardly a new thing!

The big bloody loonies.
