Batanicos midfielder Rospin Ramos tried to deceive the match referee during a match against Deportivo San Lorenzo in the Guatemalan third-tier league.
While the players of the two teams were arguing with the referee, the 22-year-old Venezuelan picked up an object that a fan threw on the field, slapped himself in the face and fell on the grass, pretending to be injured.
And the representative scene failed to play its required role as no one saw the moment of the throwing.
Deportivo players approached Ramos and asked him to stand up, but the referee did not show the player a card due to his claiming injury.
?⚽No VAR in the Guatemalan third division, but we do have video of an opportunistic player picking up an orange peel that had been tossed onto the field and acting like it hit him. ?

However, the player will face a penalty by the disciplinary body of the Guatemalan Football Association after the match, according to Football 24.
Ramos’ team lost the match, 1–3.
And spread the acting scene of the Venezuelan player on social networking sites and met many sarcastic responses and one of them said: “If they see Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt (famous Hollywood actors), Ramos’ acting will give him a standing ovation.”
The two teams, Patanicos and Deportivo San Lorenzo, are in Guatemala’s third division.
