The Premier League season is only several weeks old yet diving is in mid-season form. Eduardo’s dive against Celtic in the Champions League set the European standard while Wayne Rooney dove like he was going down on a 70 year old hooker last weekend against Arsenal. Latin America isn’t going to take this increasing trend standing up. Witness one of the worst dives you will ever see. An added bonus is one of the worst refereeing decisions in the history of sports.
The video ended before it could catch a man in a bumblebee costume paying off the ref on the touchline. He yelled, “Ay ay ay! No es bueno!” and ran off into the tunnel. Just another shady ass day in Latin American soccer. Your move, Italy.
