High kick! Javier Chila (El Nacional) sent off for follow-through karate kick on Ariel Nahuelpan

This is what you call a ‘follow through’.

El Nacional’s game against Barcelona SC in Ecuador’s Serie A was a bit heated.

El Nacional’s Javier Chila went to clear a loose ball, but as he swung back, Barcelona’s Ariel Nahuelpan jumped in two footed.

By the looks of it, Chila swung his leg karate-style by way of protection, while also trying to catch Nahuelpan with the follow through.

Nahuelpan avoided the kick, almost bullet-time, and then threw Chila back down on his ass.

Result: Chila was sent off, when really both should have been given the red for the incident.
