Nicholson red carded in Russian Cup clash

Reggae Boy Shamar Nicholson was among six players that were red carded after a 50-man brawl exploded in the Russian Cup match between Zenit St Petersburg and Spartak Moscow on Sunday.

The match was goalless and a penalty shoot-out loomed when Spartak prepared to take a free-kick from inside their own half.

However, all hell broke loose when quincy promes clashed with Wilmar Barrios. Rodrigao Prado, for Zenit, got involved and launched a number of kicks at his opponents with the referee standing right next to him.

Nicholson also punched a player in the face in front of the referee. That escalated things as players and staff from both sides charged onto the pitch to join the brawl.

Zenit's trio Barrios, Rodrigao and former Barcelona man Malcom were all shown reds cards, as were the Spartak trio of Nicholson, Aleksandr Sobolev and Aleksandr Selikhov.
