Watch: West Ham Goalkeeper Sent Off After Going Up For Corner And Almost Killing Jamie Vardy

Earlier this week we saw every goalkeeper's dream come to life when ADO Den Haag's Martin Hansen scored an injury-time equaliser with his sublime back-heel against Dutch champions PSV Eindhoven. Today we saw the nightmare.

West Ham were forced to send goalkeeper Adrian up for a corner in the hope of rescuing a point in the closing stages of their 2-1 home defeat to Leicester City. What happened next was no such fairytale, as when the ball was cleared Adrian tried to salvage it with an out-stretched leg, which subsequently only succeeded in connecting with the torso of Leicester striker Jamie Vardy.

The Spanish keeper amazingly protested to the decision from referee Anthony Taylor, it's safe to say there'll be no overturning that red card.
