Footballers are encouraged to respect their opponents at all times, butĀ Trinidad and Tobago’sĀ Ataullah Guerra took that concept a little too far when he came face-to-face with Argentina’s Lionel Messi.

As he lined up to shake hands during the pre-match introductions, Guerra eschewed the traditional handshake and opted to bow instead.

To no one’s great surprise, Argentina ran out comfortable winners 3-0.

Here are the highlights from last night’s game, which include one of the worst misses you are ever likely to see.
