The final round of the Brazilian League (U-17) between Atletico Paranaense and Fluminense, last Monday, saw a violent squabble between players in overtime.

Activists on social media circulated a video clip showing the beginning of the dispute when two players from the two teams clashed in the third minute of the calculated time instead of lost, and the result indicated that Fluminense advanced two goals to a goal.

Soon, the dispute turned into a violent collective brawl of hands and feet, as the players of the two teams entered the quarrel, including those on the bench.

The technical and administrative staff of the two teams intervened to resolve the engagement between the players, while Brazilian media reported that the referee expelled – later – 9 players from the two teams, to end the meeting with the same score (1-2), and Fluminense was crowned champion of Brazil for the fourth time in his history.

The social media tweeters bemoaned the quarrel inside the stadium, especially what happened to the Fluminense player, who entered the green rectangle – from the bench – to kick the opponent’s player with a strong “karate” blow, which sparked more riots and ignited the battle between the players.
