[VIDEO PICK: Off the Post] A pair of players clashed in a Copa do Brazil game,but tempers subsided after one kissed the other on the neck.

Internacional striker Rafael Moura, nicknamed "He Man" for his resemblance to the comic book hero, was upset after a collision with Ceara defender Sandro.

They got tangled up and Sandro seems to defuse the situation with a peck on the neck, after which Moura retreats quickly.

    No one would think anything of it, here. Russia, perhaps, but not here in the U.S.
