DTotD: Paraguay and Brazil fight, referee stands back and watches

Before Brazil started blasting penalty kicks at everything but the goal in their Copa America quarterfinal loss to Paraguay, there was a scuffle in extra time time involving the better part of both sides. As the players pushed and shoved each other, the referee blew his whistle and made a move to get to the center of the human mass to break up up. But then he decided he wasn't going to do that, took a step back and just watched the show.

Once everyone walked away, the ref handed out red cards to Paraguay's Antolin Alcaraz and Brazil's Lucas and after the match, he had the two of them act out a blow-by-blow recreation of the fight scene from They Live behind the stadium for his own enjoyment.
