WHEN IN DOUBT...WHIP IT OUT: Soccer player Geisson Perea exposes himself to distract opponent during free-kick
BOGOTA, COLOMBIA: A top-division soccer player went above and beyond to secure a win for his team as he tried to distract the opposing team during a free-kick attempt by reportedly flashing his penis. This bizarre incident took place in Colombia on Saturday, October 15, during the game between Independiente Santa Fe and Jaguares de Cordoba when Santa Fe defender Geisson Perea exposed his member to a player from Jaguares who was gearing up to take a free kick.
The shocking incident threw the opposition off their game and the player was widely off - the goal and Perea's exposed package. However, according to The Daily Mail, the 31-year-old football player later clarified that his actions were not deliberate and that he did not want to expose himself in front of the world. The broadcast cameras show that shortly after an attacker lined up to take the shot, Perera stood nearby, grabbed his pants, and exposed his manhood. He told Colombia's Win Sports TV, "I was fixing my Lycra, I had that space. When I enter [the pitch], I enter it to play and not to be aware that a camera can see me. They are synonymous with emotions that move. I am a human being and I only tried to accommodate my Lycra, my intention was not to show my private parts."
Surprisingly, Perea was not penalized during the game by the referee as he did not see the incident. It is, however, unclear if the pro player will be receiving any disciplinary action for this desperate stunt or not. Perea also appeared on El VBar de Caracol Radio and said, "The truth is I wasn't going to comment on the situation, but seeing my father's sadness and concern, seeing that reflection in my mother, the concern in my siblings made me raise my voice." He continued, "And my wife and my daughter... I'm going to speak as a person, about what happened, I leave the context of the player. We are people. We have the joy of being footballers and thank God for that, but we are people."
Normally footballers protect their manhood in a wall for a free-kick, not expose it…— Football Ramble (@FootballRamble) October 19, 2022

Perea is currently on loan from the first-division side Atletico Nacional. According to Caracol Radio, h said, "Now there is talk of a sanction, that I am disrespectful and I say; if you have arguments, show them that it was like that, don't keep the photo, look for the video and watch, in that order of ideas I feel affected. If they criticize me from a sports point of view, I will not give an opinion, but not that they criticize and question my values and my integrity as a person and a good human being that I consider myself. I feel quite affected." Despite everything, the Jaguares ended up winning, shafting Santa Fe, 2-1.
