Flopping is not a rare occurrence in soccer, but on Friday we got to see one of the most embarrassing dives the sport has seen thanks to Colombia star James Rodriguez.
After a mid-air collision with South Korea defender Kim Jin-su, Kim remained on the ground after the referee blew his whistle.
Rodriguez wasn’t having any of that, so he grabbed Kim by the jersey and pulled him to his feet. That’s when Kim took a swipe at Rodriguez’s chest and the Colombian reacted like he just took a baseball bat to the chin.
It was not the sport’s best moment.
There were no cards given for the bizarre incident, with the referee simply giving warnings to Kim and Rodriguez. South Korea went on to secure a 2-1 win, and they did it all without going the extra mile with their acting.
