VIDEO: 'Wanchope' Abila emulates Vardy with terrible dive

The former Huracan sharpshooter went too ground rather theatrically, but came back with a lovely goal to seal a 2-1 victory for the Brazilians

His skills might have seen him gain the nickname of 'Wanchope', but Ramon Abila looked more like Jamie Vardy as he tried to fool onlookerswith a blatant dive for Cruzeiro.

The ex-Huracan forward went to ground all too easily during the Brazilians' Copa Sudamericana tie against Nacional of Paraguay, which was not fooling the referee.

Abila, however, redeemed himself with a stunning effort that put Cruzeiro 2-1 up after Tuesday's first leg.
