Argentina captain Javier Mascherano saw red in more ways than one during his side's World Cup qualifier against Ecuador last night.

In a bizarre incident, the Barcelona spoiler appeared to kick out at the driver of a medical cart, apparently in response to being squirted with water.

The 29-year-old was being carried from the pitch after picking up a knock in the 86th minute of the 1-1 draw in Ecuador.

Referee Enrique Caceres showed the former Liverpool player a red card, sparking angry scenes on the touchline.

Despite the draw, in which Manchester City striker Sergio Ageuro scored from the penalty spot, Argentina remain at the top of the standings in the South America qualifying group on 26 points, three ahead of second-placed Colombia.
