During Saturday night's Brazilian Serie D match between Aparecidence and Tupi, an Idiot On The Field altered the outcome and sent his team into the playoffs.

Let's set up the situation. With about a minute left, the score was 2-2. Aparecidence (the club in white) would advance to the semi-finals on account of their away goals, so Tupi (the club in stripes) needed a win to get by. Tupi generated a last-chance offensive attack as the match winded down and looked like they had a guaranteed goal past the keeper when our Idiot On The Field—apparently a masseur for Aparecidence—jumped in, deflecting not one but two shots. He was then chased off of the field, but the game ended with Tupi losing. Everyone was fucking furious, obviously.


The match's result will reportedly be reviewed by officials.
