VIDEO: Player booked for proposing to girlfriend after scoring

Chilean player

Come on ref, show some compassion...

Eduard Bello, a midfielder for Chilean first division side Antofagasta scored early in their game against Everton CD and celebrated in a rather different fashion.

Bello, 23, ran into the crowd and proposed to his girlfriend, Venezuelan volley player Gabriel Brito. She said yes, by the way.

However, the referee was far from impressed and handed Bello a yellow card, as is protocol, for leaving the pitch.

Bello scored another goal in the game (he didn’t leave the pitch that time) but Antofagasta ended up losing the game 3-2.
