Bosnia and Herzegovina were up a goal with almost 10 minutes remaining on Sunday, but then the game took a very strange turn.

In the 79th minute of Bosnia’s 1-1 draw against Greece, Edin Dzeko picked up a second yellow card after tugging down the shorts of Sokratis Papastathopoulos. The Roma striker proceeded to push Papastathopoulos to the ground after getting back to his feet, earning him the booking.

Meanwhile, Greek player Kyriakos Papadopoulos was also sent to the locker room early after getting involved with the dispute.

Despite holding a 1-0 lead heading into the dying minutes of the second half, Greece pulled a goal back in the fifth minute of stoppage time through Giorgos Tzavellas.
