Player booked for wearing his team-mate's shirt

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 818

All sorts of weird and wonderful occurences manage to happen in football on a regular basis, with Porto defender Felipe Monteiro being the victim of just such an incident this week.

The second leg of the Portguese Cup clash between Porto and Sporting Lisbon took place in inclmenet weather conditions, leading to Brazilian centre-back Felipe deciding to put on a fresh shirt for the second half.

However, in his haste, the man who usually wears no. 28 instead picked up no. 29, which belongs to team-mate Tiquinho Soares.

Referee Jorge Sousa quickly spotted the mix-up and issued Felipe with a yelow card, before instructing him to go and change shirts once again.

Whilst it seems strange, Sousa applied the rules perfectly, with it explicitly forbidden for a player to wear a shirt bearing the name of someone else, for obvious reasons.

Check out the incident for yourself below:
