Violence in South American football is not such a rareÂ occurrence, but even by these standards, the scenes on the video below are pretty incredible considering theyÂ occurredÂ at one of the most high-profile youth tournaments in world football.
Boca Juniors, along with Manchester United, have been taking part in theÂ Future Champions U17 tournament in Brazil over the past week.
TheÂ ArgentiniansÂ took on Atletico-MG on Wednesday to decide who would progress to the semi-finals with a 1-1 draw in the end enough for the Brazilians and in turn eliminating Boca.
To say that one of the Boca players took elimination badly would be an understatement. Named Facundo, the number two raged at the referee who had earlier sent off two of his team mates.
After screaming abuse in the ref’s face, Facundo is sent off after the final whistle but decides to dig an even deeper hole for himself by pushing the official.
Whilst his team mates do try and calm him down, the rest of the Boca Under-17 side are in aggressive mood and riot police have to be called in. At the very end of the video below, you can also see how certain members of the team also kick balls at the Atletico-MG coaching staff.
