Brazil's U-17 Soccer Team Quits by Just Standing There in Match against U.S.

Brazil's under-17 soccer team was unhappy with their performance during their 4-1 loss to the US, and even less happy with the ref sending a second Brazilian player off with a red card, so they just stopped playing.

With 5 minutes remaining in the Nike International Friendlies match in Florida last weekend, the Brazilian players just stood at midfield with their hands on their hips. The American team responded in kind, by simply holding on to the ball and waiting for time to run out.

As an American, I will admit I am not super familiar with the customs of international youth soccer, but this seems like kind of a jerk move by Brazil.
