You think the flopping and diving in soccer are bad? You should she the world class cheating that goes on.
For those of you who follow Argentine soccer (and who doesn’t?) you’re already aware that Huracan Las Heras traveled to Club Atletico Union this week in an epic battle between the worst two teams in the league. The loser goes home and the winner advances in the league tournament and a chance to salvage their season. With the score tied 1-1 late in the game, Atletico Union beats the goal keeper and appears to have an open shot when substitute keeper Fernando Espinoza, who was warming up behind the goal, jumps in and swats the ball away from goal. No Gooooooooooooooooooooal!
The punishment? Espinoza got a yellow card and Atletico got a cornet kick and went on to lose the game.
Where are the soccer hooligans to start a riot when you need them?
