Paraguayan soccer player kicks referee in the face

You can't do that.

Late in the Liga Regional del Sud championship between Coronel Romero and Porvenir, a quick succession of red cards-- one for a dirty tackle, the other for a hostile protest-- drove Porvenir's Marcos Leguizamón to confront the referee by, you know, karate-kicking him in the face.

According to Dirty Tackle, police were called onto the field to defuse the situation, and the match was then called at a 2-0 Coronel Romero victory.

Almost none of the behavior in the above video is advisable, but especially not the face-kick. If you take one thing away from this exercise, make it "don't kick people in their faces".
