New footage has shown Jason Cummings being confronted by a rival player during a feisty tunnel exchange in the A-League, but the Socceroos star went on to have the last laugh.
Cummings, 27, was the latest star to feature in the A-League’s All Access series, with his episode Why So Serious? documenting his positive spell in Australia having endured a handful of false dawns in Britain.
Having returned with an injury after the World Cup, Cummings was named on the bench for the Mariners’ clash with Western Sydney Wanderers last weekend, but entering the half time break at 1-1, manager Nick Montgomery told the striker to prepare himself to come on.
And as he was heading down the tunnel with his teammates, the 27-year-old was approached by veteran defender Marcelo.
‘Hey, how is your injury man,’ the former Lyon and Besiktas star asked Cummings.

‘Good my man, you alright,’ the Socceroo responded. ‘How’s your injury?’
‘I’ll be waiting for you on the pitch,’ the Brazilian responded in an ominous warning.
‘Ah good one lad,’ Cummings replied. ‘F***ing hell’.
‘I’ll smash you in the ribs,’ Marcelo said.

Cummings replied: ‘Not a problem mate,’ before bursting into hysterics.
The 27-year-old was introduced to the game on the hour mark, with the Mariners 2-1 down after a Brandon Borrello strike put the Wanderers in front.
Marcelo is seen making a beeline for Cummings and plants a blow into his back. However, the striker kept his cool to score the equaliser, thereby having the last laugh in his unexpected feud with the Brazilian.
