A Brazilian soccer defender kissed an opposing player gently on the neck to diffuse a potentially hostile situation during a Copa de Brazil match Wednesday night between Internaticional and Ceara.It happened after Ceara centre-half Sandro took down Internaticional striker Rafael Moura and stood over him, making it difficult for Moura to get back onto his feet. Moura got into Sandro's face a bit, leading Sandro to respond with the unconventional kiss on the neck. Moura naturally was a bit taken aback and ended the confrontation by walking away, so Sandro's response seemed to serve its purpose.We'll take this behavior over Luis Suarez's biting any day.H/T Who Ate All The Pies.
