So here’s a case of bad sportsmanship leading to worse sportsmanship leading to a brawl. Foggia, in white, put the ball out at the beginning of the clip as one of the Gela players is down injured. Now when the Gela players go to put to the ball the back into play, they don’t turn it over, as they should, but move it forward on a long throw catching out the defense, scoring a goal. Normally, this would be bad enough, but the fact it came in the 92nd minute, and was scored by the Gela man who was pretending to be injured was too much, and a brawl ensued.

My team is Liverpool, and national side is Ireland, but I've also got a passion for GAA and a number of sports. Feel free to give me a shout on Google+
