This Is One Of The Most Pathetic Time Wasting Tactics We Have Ever Seen

Matias Alonso will probably not receive any sympathy from refs in the future after he hurled himself off a stretcher to waste time after "cramping up" in the late stages of Defensor Sporting's 4-3 win over Bolivian side Real Potosi in the Copa Sudamerica. 

The term "fish out of water" doesn't really do justice to what Alonso attempts here, but it's the most accurate description we could think of.

It will be interesting to see if this sparks a trend of players flopping out of stretchers like an unsuspecting person being thrown in a pool.

Seeing as Alonso's team won, the tactic seems to have worked, but karmic revenge might be waiting around the corner.
