AFCON: Ethiopia v Zambia - Jemal Tassew’s tackle

January 22, 2013 in International

The African Cup Of Nations is now in full swing, but I just wanted to document this moment of madness for the Ethiopia goalkeeper, Jemal Tassew. On day three of the tournament, cup-holders Zambia played Ethiopia and just after the half hour mark Zambia forward Chisamba Lungu made a break through the middle from a ball over the top, but was dramatically taken down by Ethiopia keeper.

After several minutes of medical attention, Jemel was stretchered off the pitch, but not before the referee showed the goalie a red card whilst being carried off. And because everyone loves a GIF, just for you, here’s one of the incident:
