If you thought a League Two side making it to the League Cup final would be the weirdest thing to happen in the semifinals of the Capital One-sponsored English football competition, you'd be wrong. Chelsea, facing a 2-0 aggregate disadvantage on the road in Wales, later found themselves down a man as Belgian Eden Hazard in an attempt to wrest a ball off the touchline from a ballboy proceeded to kick the youth.

It all but assured a very bizarre meeting in Wembley for the Cup final (Welsh side versus fourth-division, anyone?) but one simply has to ask what Hazard was thinking. [BeIN]
