Watch Brazilian players struggle to pass and shoot in this very waterlogged Serie B game (Video)

Get the scuba gear...

“Remember to ask the kit-man for some armbands.”

Brazilian Serie B sides Oeste and Boa played out a mostly underwater game of football over the weekend when the heavens opened up and left the Estádio Municipal dos Amaros pitch in literally unbelievable conditions.

The hard-to-faze referee saw no need to abandon the game and let the lads play through the ocean and somehow, each side floated the ball into the net in the first half.

Mazinho’s 54th minute goal won it for the home side and Boa’s Tadeu was sent off on the hour mark, presumably for disobeying the No Diving sign.
