Shocking footage has emerged of a women's soccer team in Congo chasing after a referee and attacking him after they were reportedly denied a penalty.
Players from DC Motema Pembe targeted the match official on the pitch with five members of the team running after him following a seemingly controversial decision.
The referee managed to break free from the initial charge, running off the field of play as he made his way onto the Athletics track circling it but the onslaught continued.
One male individual is seen trying to get involved next to the the team benches on the sidelines by swinging a punch but he fails to land the blow. It is not known if the man belonged to the same team.
The referee managed to escape for a brief period by running behind the dugout but he was then surrounded again just outside the tunnel.
