The Roma forward was caught up in a truly bizarre incident with Greece’s centre-back during the Group H encounter, ending in him being given his marching orders
Edin Dzeko was caught up in a moment of madness during Bosnia’s 1-1 draw with Greece on Sunday as he was sent off for pulling down Kyriakos Papadopoulos’ shorts.

In a bid to waste time, the former Manchester City striker tried to hold onto the ball when brought to ground only to have the ball wrestled from him by Papadopoulos.
Clearly incensed, Dzeko reacted bizarrely by pulling down the defender’s shorts. As if that wasn’t bad enough though, the 30-year-old then proceeded to push Papadopoulos to the floor with his shorts still at his knees!
Dzeko received a second yellow card for his part in the rather unusual incident and Papadopoulos was also shown a red card for his involvement in the tussle.
To make matters worse for the Roma forward, Giorgos Tzavellas grabbed a last minute equaliser for Greece in the World Cup qualifying Group H encounter.
