Watch: Edin Dzeko loses temper in bizarre fashion, pulls opponent's shorts down

In a bizarre series of events on Sunday evening, Bosnia and Herzegovina captain Edin Dzeko received a red card for pulling down an opponent's shorts in a fit of rage while playing in a World Cup qualifier match. The incident occured during Bosnia's 1-1 draw against Greece in their Group H qualifying on Sunday.

Sokratis Papastathopoulos was the Greek defender who earned Dzeko's ire, after their tussle for possession resulted in Dzeko being left prone on the turf. In a spectacular display of anger and stupidity, Dzeko tugged at Sokratis' shorts, even refusing to relent until they came all the way down. Referee Jonas Eriksson was left with no choice, and he quickly brandished a red card to the still fuming striker.

Hilarity ensued on social media, as news of the event spread:

French sources also commented on the incident, saying, "When Dzeko is in a joking mood, and drops Papastathopoulos' shorts...(yes, he got red carded)"

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who plays with the Greek Sokratis at Borussia Dortmund, also commented on the incident, suggesting that Sokratis had left football to become a "stripper".
