DTotD: Loco Abreu gets his hair pulled by teammate after scoring equalizer

Dirty Tackle

Continuing the trend of oddly violent goal celebrations we've seen this week, here we have Loco Abreu scoring a 68th-minute equalizer for Figueirense in their Copa Sudamericana match against Atletico Goianiense. When Abreu goes to celebrate this achievement with his teammates, one of them decides that trying to yank the hair out of his scalp and snap his neck in the process is an excellent way to reward him for his efforts.

Abreu goes along with it, acting like it's perfectly fine even as it goes on for an inordinate amount of time. So maybe this is just what he's into. Maybe Ronaldinho would score more if he knew an aggressive hair pulling awaited him afterwards.
