The Chilean top-flight produced one of the most appalling dives in the history of football a couple of days ago, with Universidad de Concepcion forward Jean Meneses conning the referee and winning an ultimately match-winning penalty.
With the score 1-1 between Universidad de Concepcion and Colo Colo, and just five minutes to go, the 25-year-old Meneses nicked the ball off a defender in the box.
However, rather than picking out a team-mate, the attacker decided to produce a dive of utterly remarkable proportions.

What’s worse is that the ref bought it, with Fernando Manriquez stepping up to fire home the resulting penalty and give his side a dramatic 2-1 win.
The win sees Meseses and co. go eighth in the Primera Division, three places behind the wronged Colo Colo.
Dele Alli and Danny Welbeck have a lot to learn.
