Who’s the hooligan?

This crazy footage comes from Brazil, where Flamengo – just seconds away from the final whistle in a 2-2 draw with Avai – have had a player sent-off. An angry Flamengo fan runs onto the pitch intent on, at the very least, remonstrating with the match officials.

Flamengo player Renato takes decisive action and knocks the pitch invader to the ground before he can get near the referee. As if that wasn’t enough, the ref and his linesman then aim a few kicks at the pitch invader as he lies on the ground. When it comes to attacked match officials, it appears it’s the thought that counts to this lot.

Anyhow, that’s your second tattooed, sleeveless hooligan of the day!
