Angry bird attacks linesman during Brazilian match | inside World Soccer

A linesman in Brazil had his task made even harder last week after he was attacked by a bird while attempting to perform his duties.

Maycon Vieira was running the line during the Santa Catarina State Championship match between Navegantes and Inter de Lages when a very angry bird started attacking him.

The bird continuously swooped down trying to peck at the official, causing Vieira to test his dipping, ducking and dodging skills while also trying to officiate the match.

The incident provided plenty of mirth for the cameramen and commentators - who for quite some time paid little to no attention towards the match.
