Watch as El Nacional goalkeeper Johan Padilla dives to waste time after the referee pokes him for taking too long over a goal kick.

The Ecuadorian side were leading 4-3 on aggregate in their Copa Sudamericana tie against Bolivia’s San José when Padilla tried to run out the clock with just minutes left to play.

He received a yellow card for his antics, but he was presented a golden opportunity to waste even more time when Venezuelan ref José Argote jabbed him with his finger.

To the commentator’s amusement, Padilla then tumbles to the floor with a pained expression, for which he was probably fortunate not to be shown a second yellow.

El Nacional may have gone on to clinch the victory, but Padilla shouldn’t expect too many plaudits coming his way.
