SAO PAULO (AP) — Brazil's sports tribunal has suspended a player from a third-division club for rubbing blood onto an opponent's face.

Santa Cruz midfielder Chicao was banned for two matches for smearing his own blood on the face of Fortaleza player Esley during a match on Oct. 13.

Chicao said he got upset when he realized that he had a cut above his eye after being elbowed in the face by Esley as they challenged for the ball. He got up and put his bloodied hand on Esley's face.

The incident ignited a brawl that involved players from both teams and led to Chicao and Esley being sent off.

The tribunal suspended Esley for five matches for the elbowing.
