Cardiff defender, Joel Bagan got sent off for an incredible Luis Suarezesque save against Leeds in the FA Cup on Sunday.
Championship side Cardiff City almost caused a major upset when they played Leeds United in the FA Cup third round.
The Welsh team are currently bottom of the Championship and had the odds stacked against them heading into the fixture. But they got off to a tremendous start, scoring two goals in the opening 30 minutes.
Unfortunately for them, they ended up throwing away their two-goal advantage, conceding a 93rd-minute equaliser.
But the game had a moment of madness when left-back Bagan did his best impression of Luis Suarez and saved a sure goal with his hand.

A penalty was awarded but similar to the Suarez incident against Ghana, it was saved.
Cardiff manager, Mark Hudson expressed that he was proud of his team’s performance.
“Tactically, we got it right. We showed a good shape. We countered when we could, we frustrated them and scored two really good goals.
“We knew we would suffer in the second half. They have got an abundance of talent to come off the bench. It’s not bad when you can bring Rodrigo off the bench! Overall, I’m proud.”
