Kung-fu crazy keeper: America Mineiro’s Neneca sent off for a wild assault v Bragantino
- September 20, 2012
Martial arts found their way into a Brazilian second division match on Wednesday night as Bragantino beat America Mineiro 2-zip.
Two minutes into the second period, and with the match still goalless at the time, the flow of the game was disrupted when America Mineiro’s keeper Neneca poleaxed home forward Diego Barboza.
The incident was brutal.
Neneca raced off his line to catch a cross into his box, but in the process he levelled his right boot straight into his opponent’s adam’s apple. The fact that Neneca then followed through with his thigh to Barboza’s face, while his momentum ended the assault with an elbow-drop to the back of the ofrward’s head meant that the red card which duly followed was expected and justified.
