A team of surgeons have been ticked off for celebrating a penalty save for Chile against Portugal mid-operation after the game went down to a knife-edge shootout.
Chile’s last-minute win again Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal turned out to be just what the doctors ordered – as this remarkable video from the operating theatre proves.
The surgeons are seen celebrating one of goalkeeper Claudio Bravo’s saves while an unconscious patient goes under the knife.
The Confederations Cup video clip has caused uproar in South American media, with members of the medical community blasting the surgeons as ‘irresponsible’.
Bravo’s heroics between the sticks and the celebrating surgeons made the lead item on Chilean news.
Bravo, dubbed a hero for his penalty-saving exploits, saved three of Portugal’s spot-kicks as Chile knocked out the Euro 2016 winners to secure their place in the final in Russia.
And although their achievement has been greeted with a great deal of optimism among Chilean football fans, the doctors could be for the chop.
Karla Rubilar, a member of the Chile government’s Health Commission, said: ‘This is a serious situation.
‘There are protocols that should be followed for the security and respect of all patients in all hospitals and health clinics. In this case, all of them were broken.’
