Luiz Adriano

During a Champions League game in November, Shakhtar Donetsk forward Luiz Adriano violated age-old soccer etiquette by scoring an uncontested goal against Nordsjaelland. after a drop ball. The Brazilian forward shot into an empty net following a stoppage in play when a Nordsjaelland player was injured. He was later charged by UEFA based on Article 5 of its disciplinary regulations. It includes clauses on conduct which is "insulting or otherwise violates the basic rules of decent,'' and which "brings the sport of football, and UEFA in particular, into disrepute.'' UEFA suspended Adriano for one game.
