Russian league brawl ends with four red cards

Published 23 Comments

A two-footed tackle by Dinamo Moscow player Aleksandr Kokorin led to four red cards this week after a mass brawl broke out among the players.

Kokorin's awful two-footed lunge caught a Alaniya player from behind, prompting an angry reaction.

The 22-year-old Kokorin, a Russian international with 13 caps, then slapped his opponent, sparking a melee with both sides pouring in.

Once the dust had settled, the referee dished out four red cards in quick succession. Clearly, he wasn't in the mood to mess about.

A strong piece of refereeing from the Russian official, after some rather unsavoury scenes from players who really should know better.
