When fans get stabby

This video features a goalkeeping howler (which OTP has featured plenty of) and an attempted knife attack on a player (which thankfully are a little thinner on the ground). The Copa Sudamericana tie between Argentina’s River Plater and Blooming of Bolivia was called off last night after a fan attacked River’s Henry Gimenez.

The crazed fan pushed Gimenez to the deck before being restrained, causing him to drop the knife he had been carrying. Gimenez was unhurt, but the referee decided to call the match off. River’s players were then pelted by missiles for being such big babies about a little things like a knife attack.
