Marcos Leguizamon was kung fu fighting in Coronel Romero and Porvenir's Liga Regional del Sud match, as he kicked a card happy referee in the face.

The referee, Wildo Amarilla (whose surname amusingly means "yellow" in English) flashed the colour red three times in almost as many seconds after Aldo Olmedo's late challenge.

Olmedo's teammates protested the referee's decision, so Amarilla flashed two more tarjetas rojas.

That was too much for Leguizamon, who launched a high kick straight into Amarilla's face.
