Saturday night’s World Cup qualifier between Belgium and Greece was a feisty old affair, with the away side ultimately finishing the night with nine men on the pitch.

The game also saw a blizzard of yellow cards administered throughout, though you’ll have to go some way to find an infringement weirder than the one that landed Dries Mertens in the book.

With an hour played, Mertens was became embroiled in a minor squabble with Greece defender Giorgos Tzavellas, only to settle the argument with a guerrilla nose tweak…

Yep. We don’t have a Scooby Doo either.

The match itself ended 1-1 thanks to an 89th-minute equaliser from Romelu ‘The Late Show’ Lukaku…

It’s all in the timing.
