Saturday’s Brazil-Argentina “Friendly” Highlighted by Dunga Cocaine Nose Gesture (Video + GIF)

On Saturday in China, Brazil and Argentina played a friendly billed as the “Superclassico,” a name that, on the surface, sounds like a pretty lame attempt to make a meaningless exhibition game seem important. However, it actually ended up being a pretty intense match, the highlight of which was a Dunga cocaine nose gesture toward the Argentina sideline.

Dunga, of course, is the manager of Brazil. He held that position from 2006 to 2010, was fired, and then was brought back after Brazil’s humiliating exit from the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Seeing as how Dunga’s team beat their arch rivals 2-0, you might think Dunga was happy. However, that was not the case. Something got the coach riled up, and he got into a shouting match with one of the assistant coaches on the Argentina sideline.

That led to this rather amusing Dunga cocaine nose gesture:

That’s pretty hilarious. However, the best part of this whole thing is Dunga’s explanation of it afterward.

“I never mentioned that the players were using drugs,” he told members of the media. “This kind of statement came from the media.”

However, after this firm denial, he went back to speculation.

“Maybe it’s due to the pollution in China that players had blocked noses all the time.”
