Hammarby pulverised Degerfors in the Swedish Superettan last night, winning 5-0 and closing out the game in comfort – maybe a little too much comfort.
Five goals up and cruising, Hammarby midfielder Jan Gunnar Solli picked up one of the weirdest yellow cards we’ve seen in a long while when, in an attempt to wriggle past a Degerfors defender, the Norwegian quickly stuffed the ball up inside his shirt and waltzed on by – a dribbling manoeuvre favoured by playground chancers the world over.
Sadly, the referee wasn’t impressed at the ingenuity on show and duly administered Solli with a caution for obstruction…
Nice try kid, but no cigar!
