The Ciudad Deportivo Rayo Vallecano almost fell apart on Sunday morning when Rayo's B team scored against Los Yébenes while an opposition player was injured in the penalty area. In a wonderful gesture and a message to the youth of the club and others watching, Luis Cembranos ordered his own players to stand aside and allowed the visitors march up the field from the tip-off and draw level at 1-1.
The match ended with a victory for Rayo, 4-1 to be precise, but the 'Fair Play' gesture was what was being talked about as the video quickly spread on social networks. The values of the club and the neighbourhood, Rayo Vallecano and their fans can be proud of the gesture to help in what was an unfair fight with the player on the ground.
