MANAUS, BRAZIL - Soccer supporters in North America have a hard enough time justifying players swapping jerseys post-game.

To fringe soccer fans, it doesn't make sense, especially during the summer months when kits are drenched in sweat.

But a pair of players here in Manaus took things a step further Wednesday night.

After Croatia humiliated Cameroon 4-0 at Arena Amazonia, Ivan Rakitic and Stephane M'Bia didn't just trade shirts.

No, they went above and beyond the norm.

Once inside the tunnel, they dropped their drawers before exchanging them as well.

But it's not like Rakitic had anything to lose. He has already been seen in the nude.

Croatian officials lambasted paparazzi last week after pictures surfaced of the team swimming nude in their training complex's pool.
