The ambulance was driven onto the pitch to carry the player off but after stretching Carmo into the vehicle, the engines refused to start.

This resulted in players from both sides pushing the ambulance out of the pitch which left tyre marks on the field.

Porto were leading by 1-0 in the Taca de Portugal semi-final first-leg as they continued playing the match with ten men on the pitch.

The referee's assistant signaled 12 extra minutes will be added to the 90 due to the injury that occurred to Carmo.

Porto were unlucky during the 12 minutes of added time as Mateus Uribe was sent off for a disgusting lunge of his own as they finished the game with nine men.
