Ronadinho has been attracting attention for his stunning free kicks at the Club World Cup, but the Atletico Mineiro player lost his cool late on against Guangzhou Evergrande during the 3rd/4th place playoff and was red-carded. 

The forward snapped after a spate of rough challenges from the Chinese defence, kicking out from the ground at a defender.


His blushes were spared, however—10-man Mineiro scored at the death to win the match 3-2.
