Crucero del Norte defender Federico Rosso was lucky to get away with just a booking after wiping out two players with one sliding tackle.

In a recent clash with Boca Unidos in the Argentine second-division, the powerful centre-back floored a pair of opposing attackers, who were lurking dangerously on the edge of the box.

As Rosso attempted to clear his lines he went straight through the unsuspecting duo, and earned a yellow card from the referee for his clumsy committal.

With Crucero del Norte protecting a 2-0 lead, the South American stopper refused to give up his side's clean sheet, but ended up giving away a precarious free-kick less than 20 yards from goal.

Thankfully for Rosso, nothing came from the set-piece, and the hosts went on to secure all three points with a resounding 6-0 victory.

Crucero followed that win up with another clean sheet in a 1-0 away success against Aldosivi on Friday, and now sit in third place in the Prim B Nacional table.
