Epic Fail: Yang Xu sent off for attempting Maradona’s famous ‘Hand of God’ [Video]

Shandong Luneng were today handed a 4-1 beating in the AFC Champions League group stages by Jeonbuk Motors.

Yang Xu scored Shandong Luneng’s only goal before later being shown a second yellow card in ridiculous circumstances.

Trailing 3-1 in the 79th minute, Yang Xu attempted to re-produce Diego Maradona’s famous ‘Hand of God’.

Not only did his effort hit the post and rebound into the keeper’s arms but the referee clearly saw what Xu attempted.

He was shown his second yellow card and could have no complaints.

If only this referee was about in 1986 when Diego Maradona conned the referee to eliminate England.
