The best facial hair in sport: Olympiakos midfielder Paulo Machado likened to Borat during victory over Manchester United
Machado came on as a substitute, but it was not his performance that attracted attention
While most of the talk has focused on Manchester United's hapless display in Greece, one Olympiakos player did manage to cause a bit of stir himself, at least on social media.
It was not Alejandro Dominguez, scorer of Olympiakos' first goal. Nor was it Joel Campbell, the on-loan Arsenal striker who doubled their advantage. It was in fact a second half substitute by the name of Paulo Machado.
Who, you ask? If you watched last night's game, you'll remember him as the man with the most fantastic moustache in football.
Likened to Borat and Freddy Mercury, the sight of the central midfielder was perhaps the only thing that may have managed to raise a smile from Manchester United fans.
