Bizarre Brawl Brawl Breaks out in Venezuela from Goalkeeper's Faux Fair Play

Sean Swaby@seanswabyUK Staff WriterMay 22, 2014

When in doubt, fall down and pretend to be hurt...for no reason at all. 

In one of the more nonsensical football scenes of recent memory, Mineros goes down by two goals in the Venezuela Primera Division final, and a fight breaks out because their goalkeeper decided to bizarrely hold on to the ball instead of clearing it. 

Or because he was hurt, despite showing no signs of it. 

So when he cautions an on-rushing attacker to stay away, the confused attacker takes the ball from said goalkeeper and scores, and all hell breaks loose.

And the goalkeeper is hurt, clearly. Very hurt.
