If you pull someone’s shorts down, you’re gonna get a red card

Sunday November 13th, 2016

Bosnia’s Edin Dzeko was sent off on Sunday against Greece for a rather funny move during a tussle.

Just 10 minutes into the match, Dzeko yanked down Sokratis​ Papastathopoulos’s shorts, earning a red card and a trip to the locker room. Papastathopoulos was also sent off for his role in the incident.

The two sides drew in their World Cup qualifier after a late equalizer. No more shorts were pulled down.
