Jamie Vardy Given Straight Red Card After 'Disgusting' High Challenge

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy was sent off during Leicester's win over Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday after a dangerous challenge on right-back Matt Doherty.

The England international, who scored on their opening game of the season against Manchester United, was sent for an early bath in the 65th minute when he connected with Doherty's leg with force.

Claude Puel's side went on to win the game 2-0 thanks to an own goal from the Irish defender and a 45th minute striker from the talented James Maddison.

But this moment somewhat took the shine off the win.

It could have been so much worse for Doherty, who should be fine after the collision.
