Elias Di Biasi, a midfielder for Deportivo Italiano was left standing in his underwear.

“At the beginning I was going to try to fend them off, but there were three of them.” said Di Biasi. 

The incident took place on Wednesday during a fourth division match against Villa San Carlos, with Deportivo losing 3-0.

Several masked hooligans charged across across the pitch, taunting the victim, before returning to the stands.

Di Biasi was given a replacement kit and the match continued after a short delay.
