The Shocking Moment Defender Is Sent Off For Clashing With His Own Goalkeeper In 95th Minute

A bizarre sending off occured in Norway on Sunday after two teammates clashed in stoppage time despite leading the game.

Viking FK were on the cusp of claiming a 3-2 victory away at at Kristiansund after coming from behind with two late strikes.

Veton Berisha equalised in the 88th minute with a penalty and then Sondre Bjorshol bagged the winner in the 93rd minute.

But then out of nowhere David Brekalo and Patrik Gunnarsson got into it as the game drew to a close.

Brekalo shoved Gunnarsson twice when he approached him and the second one led the goalkeeper to drop to the turf.

It was quite a theatrical fall from Gunnarsson, who started clutching his face as though he had punched.

His over-the-top antics resulted in an angry Brekalo being given his marching orders by the referee in the fifth minute of stoppage time.

Viking did hold on for the three points and are currently third in the Norwegian top flight.

The altercation brought back memories to the infamous on-field scrap between Newcastle colleagues Lee Bowyer and Kieron Dyer back in 2005.

Newcastle lost 3-0 and finished the eight game, with both players sent off in one of the most memorable moments in premier League history.

Steven Taylor had earlier been sent off for handball in the same game.

Graeme Souness was baffled by what he saw and put the blame on Bowyer as he felt he was the aggressor.

"I've been assured by Kieron that he didn't throw any punches and that he was on the receiving end," Souness said post-match.

"That's the route we will be going down.

"Lee's actions are indefensible. He's guilty - as the pictures show - of throwing more than one punch and will have to accept any punishment coming his way. We feel Kieron has an argument."
