Think your Monday is bad? At least you didn't get sent off while lying on a stretcher

Then again, that’s what you get for kung-fu kicking your opponent.

IT WASN’T A great day for Jemal Tassew. The Ethiopian goalkeeper had a rush of blood to the head during his side’s Africa Cup of Nations opener against Zambia and poleaxed Chisamba Lungu with this flying kung-fu kick.

That’s not great but it got worse for Tassew who not only injured himself but then was shown a red card while he was being stretchered off  the pitch.

Ouch.

VIDEO: Is this the best goalkeeper celebration you’ve ever seen?
