Emerson Acuña dive

29 November 2008: 3rd round of the semi-final group stage of the Cluasura 2008 tournament in Colombia Atlético Junior's striker Emerson Acuña pulled off one of the most notorious dives in football history, throwing himself to the floor to win a penalty against América de Cali despite being offside and having no opposition players within metres of him.

Junior get a 1-1 draw out of the game, but América had the last laugh winning the return fixture 2-0 and eventually going on to win the championship.
