(Video) – Firmino’s nutmeg sparked excessive conflict in Brazil’s 2-0 win

Posted by

Brazil progressed to the final of the Copa América after a goal and an assist from the Reds’ Roberto Firmino saw them overcome Argentina in their semi-final clash.

Bobby was a threat all over the pitch, using his skill and style to weave a way forward for A Seleção.

With the game at 2-0, Firmino nutmegged Lautaro Martínez who was not too happy about being made to look like a fool; the Inter Milan forward shoved Bobby to the ground and reportedly screamed “I will break your jaw” at the 27-year-old.

With the whistle blown, the two found themselves clashing and had to be separated by the referee as as Argentinian and Brazilian tempers flared and their teammates surrounded them.

While Firmino can probably look after himself, Philippe Countinho and Gabriel Jesus got involved as they defended Bobby – if only Fabinho was there to put the fear of O Monstro in Martínez.
