Fourth-division team arrive for Copa Argentina match wearing superhero masks, beat first-division team
When you’re a fourth division club facing a top-flight side in a cup competition, it’s difficult to intimidate your opponents. So Sacachispas decided to go the other way with it and wear cheap Halloween masks onto the pitch for their Copa Argentina match against Arsenal de Sarandi then pose for their team photo like a bootleg Justice League.
De la cuarta categoría del fútbol pero eliminaron en penales a un equipo de Primera en la #CopaArgentina Superhéroes Sacachispas. ⚽️ https://t.co/3i1OPRHsAE
After witnessing that display of insanity, Arsenal likely had a hard time taking their opponents seriously. So much so that the match ended up going to penalties, where Sacachispas won 6–5.
And that’s why they call it The Beautiful Game. I think.
