Kiwi player sent off for idiotic two-footed stamp in defeat to UAE

It’s the routine nature of this that scares us most.

AS THEY LOOK forward to an intercontinental play-off for a spot at the 2014 World Cup in November, New Zealand headed for the UAE this week for a friendly to keep themselves sharp.

They lost.

And they didn’t lose well either. As you can see in the video above; the All Whites were trailing 2-0 in the final minutes when defender Ben Sigmund decided to not only swiped at Ali Mabkhout to let the forward take a cheap foul, he followed it up with a bunny-hop onto his legs.

It’s almost as if he doesn’t realise he’s doing anything wrong, that’s the scariest thing.
