TV footage shows a protesting Pucheta being urged to leave the field by opposing players.

Goalscorer Segundo Portocarrero had to replace him between the sticks for the rest of the game.

Reports in Ecuador claim the south American country’s FA could ban him for between three and 12 months.

Macara president Miller Salazar admitted: “Pucheta did in fact go behind his goal to urinate, and that seems to be why he was sent off.”

Local newspaper Primicias said: “Pucheta went behind the advertising boards, and urinated while play was in the opposing half.

“Orense’s players and staff complained to the referee, who showed the goalkeeper a straight red card.”

And their No1 keeper may also be ruled out for a year.
