The beautiful game as the legendary Pelé calls it is a game of crazy moments as well. One such instant was recorded during Tuesday night’s Absa Premiership action between Cape Town City and Highlands Park at Cape Town Stadium, South Africa when one Kermit Erusmus simply lost it!
The 28-year-old forward, in a rush for a quick restart, kicked hard Highland Park’s Mothobi Mvala on the knee, attracting a direct red card from the center in the 18th minute, but not before some drama.

The Citizens, as Cape Town City are nicknamed, tweeted that Mvala went down like “a movie character.”

Despite playing over 70 minutes with a man less, the coach Benny McCarthy’s side gave a good account of themselves – rallying from behind to pick a point in a 1-1 draw.
