Enner Valencia had a lot of things on his mind ahead of Ecuador's World Cup qualifier with Chile on Thursday night.
Earlier this week, the Everton stiker, who is on loan from West Ham, escaped arrest over alleged unpaid child payments. According to AS, the 26-year-old owes $17,000 to the mother of his child.
Such was Valencia's eagerness to evade capture, the team bus parked as close as possible to a door in the stadium, to let the player in, unharmed.
In farcial circumstances, Valencia started the 3-0 win, but was taken off in the 10 minutes, appearing to feign injury in a bid to evade police.
As Valencia was carted off the pitch to be brought to an ambulance, police can be clearly seen, running along the side of the pitch trying to catch the player.
