You can leave your hat on: Players booked in Argentina for celebrating with fireman's helmet

If you didn't happen to catch Estudiantes against Lanus last night, you missed out on a bit of a cracker, with goals and celebrations for the ages

As most of us would think to do when you've scored what could best be described as an ugly goal, you want to try and divert attention away from it by coming up with a great celebration.

That's exactly what Lautaro Acosta and team mate Santiago Silva managed to do last night for Lanús after they equalised last night against Estudiantes, where both players ran to the sideline and grabbed a fireman's helmet each to celebrate the goal. They were summarily booked by the referee, who was pretty dramatic when brandishing the cards.

The goal which they went behind to came in the first two minutes of the game, and was a better finish, it has to be said. Guido Carrillo scored a great bicycle kick, which was an example of some truly awful defending but also some opportunistic acrobatics. An attempted clearance hit Lanús defender Diego Gonzalez in the face, and then bounced up perfectly for Carrillo to attempt the audacious finish.

The game finished in a draw, but we really must start carving out a bit more time to watch the Argentine league on a regular basis if this is anything to go by.
