FORE! Edilson (Botafogo) sends corner into Row Z due to massive divot in Maracanã pitch (v Vasco)

FORE! Edilson (Botafogo) sends corner into Row Z due to massive divot in Maracanã pitch (v Vasco)

Never mind the bus prices, Brazil have got to get the pitch at the temple of football up to standard first and foremost!

The Maracanã is in dire need of a resurfacing, as Botafogo’s weekend draw with Vasco alarmingly showed.

As Botafogo’s Edilson went to take a corner, his set-piece went sailing high into the terraces, probably somewhere around Row M, but before branding it an epic failure, the state of the corner spot needs to be noted.

Edilson picked up a bigger divot that you’d find in the rough of golf course located on a bog.

WTF? Get it together CBF, this ain’t good enough!
