VIDEO: Pedro Gonçalves nutmegs referee during Portugal vs England U21 match

Appears to laugh about it afterwards.

Pedro Gonçalves nutmegged the referee during a break in play as Portugal took on England in the U21 European Championships on Sunday.

And he seemed to have a laugh about it afterwards with teammate Daniel Bragança as they waited for an injured player to receive treatment in the Group D match.


The Portuguese side won 2-0 at the Stožice Stadium in Slovenia with second half goals apiece from Dany Mota and Francisco Trincão.

A midfielder, Gonçalves has been in sensational form for Sporting Lisbon this season, scoring 15 goals in 22 Primeira Liga games.
