It didn't much matter to Mohamed Sobhi that he and his Ismaily teammates were up 3-2 in the waning moments of their match against El Gounah. What mattered most to the goalkeeper was that he apparently thought his defender Shadi Mohamed spat in his face after some action in front of the net.
As the hosts looked for one last chance to snatch a point, a cross was fizzed into the penalty box. Protecting his goalmouth, Ismaily keeper Sobhi collided with defender Ahmed Sedik as the pair raggedly cleared the danger, but that was only the beginning as Shadi Mohamed then blew up on his own goalie.
With reports claiming that Mohamed spat at Sobhi, the cameras clearly picked up the aftermath as the custodian was pinned back by his colleagues as he went for the number 15.
Mohamed was then branded with the red card, leaving him to trudge off the pitch with his tail between his legs.
