Norwegian soccer player wipes out while trying to show anger at red card
Espen Hoff, a winger for IK Start in Norway's Tippeligaen, was shown a red card in Monday's game against Sarpsborg 08 and fell down hard while trying to show his frustration.
Hoff was sent off after a tackle in the first half and didn't quite agree with the call. As he walked to the locker room, Hoff tried to kick something in the tunnel but found that soccer cleats don't have the same sort of traction on a smooth floor as they do on grass. His feet came out from under him and he went crashing to the ground. That's embarrassing
Here's a Vine so we can watch it on a loop:
Start went on to lose 2–1 and sits in 13th place in the 16-team league after 10 games.
