Football: Mineiro goalie dismissed for kicking ball into crowd; Pato booed off field
RIO DE JANEIRO (REUTERS) - Atletico Mineiro goalkeeper Victor was sent off for angrily kicking a ball into the crowd after his team's goal-less draw at Internacional in the Brazilian championship.
Corinthians forward Alexandre Pato was jeered by his own fans in a 1-0 win over Coritiba and six-time champions Sao Paulo missed another penalty as they extended their winless run to 12 matches in other matches on Sunday.
South American champions Mineiro (14th on 16 points) played for more than one hour away to former Brazil coach Dunga's Internacional with 10 men, after Fernandinho was sent off for elbowing an opponent, but still managed to hang on for a point.
After the final whistle went, goalkeeper Victor immediately collected the ball, turned around and hoofed it into the Internacional fans behind him.
