Chile’s U-20 Bryan Carrasco full-back used Ecuador forward Edson Montano’s hand to smack himself in the face to get a free kick. I believe the ploy was set up by Carrasco to gain more than free kick but he was lucky enough to get something out of it at least.

Players all over the world are known to dive, trip themselves over, et cetra. But this young man pulled off something that’s quite some thing!

Ecuador, who were leading 1-0 at the time, went on to win the South American U-20s World Cup qualifier and claimed the final qualifying spot.
