Video: Brazilian player elbowed, smears own blood across opponent's face

Posted by chriswright

There were weird scenes inside the goldmine that is the Brazilian third division at the weekend where, after having his nose bloodied by his Fortaleza opponent, Santa Cruz midfielder Chicao took umbrage at his attacker and retaliated by going all Mola Ram on his patootie - smearing dripping claret across the face of the man whose pointy bits he'd just collided with...

Both players were then sent-off for their respective parts in the fiasco, as well as two more players (that's four in total kids!) who had the temerity to voice their concerns over the potentially dangerous bloody ritual.
