It’s always entertaining when some players go out of their way to try and trick a referee when there are a load of cameras at the game, it’s obviously going to get picked up and the punishments will just get worse.
This clip comes from Sao Raimundo RR vs Cruzeiro in the Brazilian Cup, where Cruzeiro are about to have a man sent off for a second yellow.
They attempt to swap the player lying on the ground after the foul in an attempt to trick the ref, but it was never going to work and the red card is swiftly shown to Edu:

It proved pointless in the end as Cruzeiro went through anyway, but it will be fascinating to see if the authorities take any action on this one.
