Pepe Headbutt

The “Group of Death” seems to have taken another casualty, leading some fans to wonder if the name might be a little misleading.

As Germany dominates Portugal 3-0 at the half, Portugal will be forced to play the rest of the match a man down, as their hot-head in-residence defender Pepe got a red card for both antagonizing another player and headbutting him—that player being Germany’s Thomas Müller.

Here you can see the initial act, and Pepe’s response:

While it can be argued that Müller took an effort to sell the offense, Pepe is notorious when it comes to this type of thing.  So I don’t think anyone’s going to be too quick to take his side—except maybe Portugal fans.

This probably won’t change the outcome of the game (Germany was up 2-0 at the time of infraction), but when we factor in all that fun stuff like goal differential and Pepe’s absence from the next match against the USA, it’s a pretty big development for the “Group of Death.”

Instead of “Group of Death,” maybe we should start calling it “the Group the had Germany” instead.

***UPDATE***

Germany has gone on to win the game by a score of 4-0.
