Being knocked out meant they missed out on £154,000, which they were hoping to pin their financial survival on after slipping to the bottom of their domestic league.

President Heriberto Gamarra said: “He is fired because we want to leave this episode behind us.”

It was a brutal outcome for Parra, who was not even the only player on his team to miss from the spot.
