AND FINALLY… THE BIG TISSUE

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

We all know South Americans go to ground easily, even after the lightest of touches. So, while we certainly don’t condone people throwing things onto the pitch, it doesn’t come as a surprise to see Paraguayan linesman (yes, we said linesman) Milciades Saldivar on the deck after being hit by a projectile. But what causes him such agony? A coin? Or glass bottle? Errr, not quite.

And finally… behave

Have a look at this preposterous dive from Olympiakos forward Karim Ansarifard, theatrically throwing himself to the floor when an AEK Athens defender dares to go within a postcode of the Iranian. Rather than sheepishly accepting his mistake, he doubles down Рcontininuing to argue with the unimpressed officials.
