Fabio Coentrao booked for crotch-grab gesture aimed at Pepe Reina

Dirty Tackle

Portugal defender Fabio Coentrao apparently did not appreciate whatever Spain backup goalkeeper Pepe Reina was shouting from the bench because shortly before halftime in their Euro 2012 semifinal match, Coentrao pointed to Reina and grabbed his crotch. This earned him one of the match's nine yellow cards and didn't seem to make Reina anymore friendly.

Reina got the last laugh, however, as Spain would end up winning the match on penalties. Coentrao, who was one of Portugal's top performers throughout the tournament, could only cover his face with his hands as he quietly walked off the pitch...

Coentrao either very sad or he just doesn't want to look at Ronaldo's thighs again. (Getty)
