(Video) Mayhem ensues as horror challenge on Luis Diaz sparks mass brawl during Colombia victory

Posted by

It’s fair to say that Luis Diaz had an eventful Saturday during Colombia’s 3-0 win over Bolivia.

The Liverpool forward scored one goal and set up another in New Jersey, while he was also met by a starstruck young fan who ran onto the pitch during the first half of the game.

Later on in the match, the 27-year-old was on the receiving end of a wild and dangerous lunge by Cesar Menacho, who was rightly sent off.

That horror challenge prompted some of Diaz’s teammates to confront the Bolivia striker and a mass brawl duly ensued, with Colombia’s Daniel Munoz also seeing red amid scenes of mayhem.

It’s hard to blame the Colombian players for being so incensed after seeing such a horrendous tackle, one which could’ve inflicted serious injury but thankfully didn’t in this case as Lucho played on.
