One nutmeg is embarrassing enough for a defender. Two is plain humiliating. Three? Just ask Jean Rolt how it feels after he saw the ball put between his legs a hat-trick of times in quick succession.

The hapless Nautico defender was left beetroot-faced during a Brazilian Serie A match after Maxi Rodriguez of Gremio nutmegged him not once, not twice, but three times in a matter of seconds.

Clearly wanting his torture to end, Rolt finally decided to halt Rodriguez in his tracks in the only way he knew would be effective - with a nasty-looking challenge that sent the Uruguay U20 international tumbling to the turf.

Unsurprisingly, as he retreated back towards his penalty box, he was shown a yellow card. He might even consider himself fortunate the colour of the card did not match the hue of his complexion.
