Neymar sent off for wearing mask – Celebration leading to red card
BRAZILIAN wonder kid Neymar was sent off — for wearing a mask of his own face! The Santos striker, 19, scored a brilliant individual goal in the Copa Libertadores clash with Colo Colo. He ran into the crowd to grab the mask from a fan before returning to the pitch to celebrate. But the referee did not see the funny side of his actions and showed him a second yellow card. Neymar was the first of FIVE players to be sent off in an ill-tempered match which Santos won 3-2. Neymar sent off for wearing mask.
