Our friends at Dirty Tackle inform us that Argentinian side River Plate have been disparagingly referred to as ‘chickens’ since letting a two-goal lead slip in the second leg of the 1966 Copa Libertadores final against Penarol.

Opponents Quilmes spotted a great opportunity for a visual gag and released some chickens on the pitch ahead of kick-off in their match. Cue some interesting chicken wrestling scenarios for stewards.
