An Argentine footballer’s intended shocking two-footed challenge led to a match escalating to an all-out brawl during the game.
Social Atletico Television were in action against La Union de Jaguel in the Lujan League final in Argentina’s capital of Buenos Aires.
According to an Australian publication, SAT midfielder Lucas Torres came up with a horrific airborne two-footed challenge on a rival player in the final minutes of the match.
The insane challenge saw the opposition player blown off his feet before he ended up crashing face-first onto the pitch.
This challenge eventually led to a massive brawl as players from both sides started to wildly throw punches at one another.
Players in the video below, which went viral on social media, can also be spotted throwing kicks at one another.
Someone sent this to me thru Whatsapp. I don’t know where it is, I don’t know from when it is.
But this lunging tackle only has ONE explanation. The guy’s girlfriend cheated on him with the poor dude on the receiving end 🤷🏻♂️

According to reports, the match was immediately called off and both teams were sent to their respective changing rooms.
However, players continued to exchange verbal blows while on their way to their dressing rooms. Torres has been in such awful conditions before too when he was handed a 24-day suspension for assaulting a referee in 2016.
During the incident, the Argentine footballer was shown a red card from the official and he subsequently shoved him in the face.
His antics have also made ESPN’s list of “worst tackle of the year”.
