Video: Bizarre scenes as Everton striker Enner Valencia fakes injury to flee police

The Ecuador international was met by officers representing the mother of his child.

The striker, who is currently on loan at Everton from West Ham, was confronted by officers when he arrived at the stadium in Quito over unpaid child maintenance bills.

He was met by officers and solicitors representing the mother of his five-year-old child over a £13,500 debt.

After evading arrest on that occasion, Valencia then scored Ecuador’s first goal before orchestrating his own escape by being substituted and exiting the stadium in an ambulance.

That resulted in quite incredible scenes at Estadio Olímpico Atahualpa as police pursued Valencia, who was being transported to the ambulance in a golf cart, on foot.
