With Cameroon a goal down against Croatia and rapidly losing their frail grasp on the game, Alex Song went and got himself sent-off for a swinging a frankly absurd elbow down the middle of Mario Mandzukic’s back as he chased the striker toward the half-way line.

No idea what he was going for (or why?) with this one, but the Barca midfielder was quite rightly shown the third red card of the World Cup as a result…

Utterly mystifying. Perhaps he was hoping to snag an early lift back to Barcelona with the Spain squad?
