© Provided by Independent Print Limited The Czech Football Association (FACR) have banned two match officials who appeared to be drunk during a top-flight game - one appeared to be intoxicated on the sidelines and the other was seen urinating during a game.

Thursday's verdict by the federation's referee committee came a day after the incidents occurred during a match between Pribram and Slavia Prague, which was broadcast live.

Marek Pilny's behavior as the fourth official attracted attention from the start.

Pilny was stumbling along the sideline and at one point he fell over, prompting the TV commentator to say the referee provided better entertainment than the players.

Pilny was escorted from the field at half-time - a video has been uploaded to YouTube (watch below).

Behind the goal, Jiri Jech was seen urinating during the same game.
