Soccer player picks up corner flag and uses it like a spear during brawl

What the ...

This game between Independiente del valle and River plate went completely off the rails during a brawl that saw Independiente’s Angelo Preciado grab the corner flag and try to fight off his opponents.

Here’s the thing about soccer: Idiots always call the sport soft, or make fun of players flopping — but when was the last time you saw a football player find an improvised weapon on the field and use it to defend themselves?

Thankfully nobody was hurt, and the corner flag was taken away from Preciado — but still, goodness. Now we just wait for the suspensions to roll in.
