Player brutally attacked for missing penalty
A bizarre story has come out of Peru following a cup match which was settled by penalty shootout.
Unión Fuerza Minera were knocked out of the cup by Saetas de Oro in a 4-3 penalty shootout after the sides had drawn 1-1 on aggregate.
The match was settled by a penalty shootout, with the unfortunate Martin Dall’Orso missing the crucial spot-kick. Little did he know what lay in store for him after the game.
According to Dall’Orso’s father, several fans attacked his son on the team coach, but what made this assault even more sinister is that it was allegedly carried out at the behest of the club’s president.
“We lost the match and several fans boarded the bus,” he said. “My son was held at gunpoint and they smashed his head with the butt of the gun. My wife has bruises on her arms and legs.
“The president, Serapio Sucasaire, Omar and Ramiro Sucasaire were the perpetrators of the attack. He commanded them to beat us.
His son subsequently spoke to Peruvian TV explaining what had happened. You can see that interview along with the penalty miss itself.
