Vasco da Gama’s Bruno Silva was left unconscious after a nasty-looking clash in their 1-1 draw with Flamengo on Saturday night and the ambulance that was driven onto the pitch to collect him needed a push start from the players.

Instructions were received at the driver’s window before players from both teams gathered around the vehicle to push it, once the 30-year-old had been carefully loaded in following many minutes of medical attention.

Bruno Silva reportedly passed out momentarily after getting clattered by Vasco teammate Luiz Gustavo going for a header.

Deep into the second half at the Estádio Nacional Mané Garrinch in Brasília, the home side had already made all three of their possible substitutions.


The game went on to have 15 minutes of time added on at the end of the 90 but neither side was able to break the deadlock.

Latest reports were that the player was taken straight to a private clinic in the capital which had ruled out the worst fears over his injury.
