Friendly match fist fight

Training ground kickabout turns nasty

The relaxed nature of the kits on display and the brief glimpses of footballing action shown in the video above suggests that most of the players of Tigre and Argentinos Juniors knew that this was a meaningless training ground practice match. Unfortunately, nobody told Nolberto Paparatto and Nicolas Pavlovich.

The friendly turned nasty just minutes into the game when Pavlovich caught Paparatto with a bad tackle just outside the area. The sight of Pavlovich waiting for the ball to arrive on the halfway line moments later proved too much of a temptation for Paparatto who went straight through the back of his adversary to get his revenge. Cue fisticuffs.
