Brazilian players double up on shameful fake head-butts

It has become sadly commonplace for players to try to get their opponents sent off these days.

They talk and taunt and try to goad others into a foolish action that will give their side a man advantage.

Sometimes it works, like when Italy's Marco Materazzi got France legend Zinedine Zidane to head-butt him in the 2006 World Cup final.

But what happens when players from both teams have the same idea? You get this disgraceful display from Brazil's second division on Sunday.

Gosh, sure hope everyone's OK.

The last frame of that video shows the referee running away from the poor actors, thankfully, oblivious.

Here's hoping Serie B watches the film, however, and hands both players a lengthy spell on the sidelines to think about what they've done.
