WHEN FOOTBALL FANS of the future look up “unsporting behaviour” in the dictionary, they will see a picture of Shakhtar Donetsk striker Luiz Adriano.

Trailing 1-0 in tonight’s Champions League match against Nordsjaelland of Denmark, one of Adriano’s team-mates politely tried to return an uncontested drop ball to the opposition as per usual.

For some reason — maybe he really doesn’t like losing — the Brazilian nipped in, stole the ball and rounded goalkeeper Jesper Hansen to score while the Nordsjaelland players looked on in utter, utter disgust.

Adriano went on to complete a hat-trick as Shakhtar ran out 5-2 winners.
