It turns out Pepe also stands for dumdum.

Portugal’s veteran centre back earned a red card Monday afternoon for heatbutting German forward Thomas Muller.

The incident began when Muller went down after taking a hand to the face by Pepe. While Muller sitting down with his head in his hands, Pepe appeared to offer a rude apology, smashing heads with his opponent.

Pepe was sent off, and Muller scored his second goal of the match shortly afterward to make it 3-0 before halftime.
