Vasco’s Nilton sent off for flying kick to the head
A decent way to ingratiate yourself to the Copa Libertadores. Come on the field, play for seven minutes, and then commit a mental and sickening flying kick which leave your stud marks all over the back of an opponent’s head. The referee was left with little choice but to issue a red card.
Step forward Nilton of Vasco da Gama, who owes a letter of apology to Giancarlo Carmona of Alianza Lima.
