There's a reason Evo Morales is president of Bolivia

He's Number 10, for those of you who don't speak Spanish. Skip ahead to 0:35 if you'd like, there's not much of interest to gringos prior to that.

And no, he's not some master soccer player who happens to be president. This was supposed to be a friendly match.

The match pitted President Evo Morales against political rival La Paz Mayor Luis Revilla to inaugurate a new field. Each led their teams in a bitter, foul-filled match that ultimately ended in a 4-4 tie.
The best part?
One of the president's bodyguards reportedly sought to arrest Cartagena, who was ultimately kicked out of the match, but Revilla intervened on his behalf.
Cartagena's the dude writhing on the ground. There's a lesson to be learned in handling your opponents there, I'm thinking.
