One of the most blatant attempts to dupe a referee seen in a while was created by a Guatemalan third-division game.
Player Rosbin Ramos from Batanecos FC picked up an object that fans had thrown on to the pitch.
He then hit himself in the face and fell to the floor, pretending it had been thrown at him.
Unfortunately, his success was wasted because the match officials did not see the incident. So, no penalties were given.
However, the whole thing has been recorded on camera, and can be seen here.
