Video: Brazilian player gets bitten by a police dog
In England, dissent is punishable by a yellow card. But in Brazil you get a police dog’s teeth embedded in your thigh instead.
That’s what happened to Caxias striker Vanderlei at the weekend, at least.
Vanderlei and his team-mates were protesting the referee’s decision to award a goal to opponents Novo Hamburgo, overruling his linesman’s flag. Everything got a bit tense, until one canine crowd controller decided he had seen enough and it was about time he had a bit of a nibble on one of the players.
And the plan worked a treat. The situation was soon diffused and Vanderlei was getting treatment for his bite wound.
