Players Call Foul After Pepper Spray Attack :
The flash-point happened in a Brazilian football match between lower-league teams Genus and Moto Clube.via
Genus player Robson refused to head for an early bath when the ref showed him a red card for a nasty tackle in the 64th minute.
Instead he and four team-mates berated the man in black, who felt so threatened he called on police.
Clad in full riot gear and brandishing shields and batons, four officers at first tried to escort Robson off the pitch.
When he resisted they pulled out their pepper-sprays and gave him and the other players a blast in the face.
