Head of the Chechen Republic, Ramzan Kadyrov, is well-known for his hands-on running of the war-torn region - but less talked about is his brace against World Cup winners Brazil during a fixture in Grozny.
The portly President notched a couple of goals as his side, made up of players from local side Terek Grozny and several politicians, went down 6-4 against a Seleçao XI containing the likes of Cafu, Bebeto, Dunga and Romario.
Somewhat inevitably the centre of attention, Kadyrov first won a penalty with a sack-of-spuds-drop-to-the-floor, before going on to calmly round the, erm, floundering keeper to dispatch the ball into the onion bag.
Dunga, the former Fiorentina stalwart and samba skipper who lifted the famous Jules Rimet trophy in 1994, wouldn't be drawn when asked whether his side went easy on their hosts.
Rumours that David Moyes has just had a £15 million bid turned down are as yet unconfirmed.
