As per custom, the World Cup semi-final encounter between the Netherlands and Argentina was a tense affair. The match only needed a small flint to light the fire.

Enter Leandro Paredes.

The Juventus midfielder caused a major stir in the 88th minute when with a rash tackle on Dutch defender Nathan Aké, and when the Oranje bench rose to protest, he shot the ball directly at them, prompting a major melee.

Eventually, the Argentines emerged victorious on penalty shootouts following a 2-2 draw.
