Jan Vertonghen's Europa League Flop Was Oscar-Worthy

Either Tottenham's Jan Vertonghen has a literal glass jaw or he was guilty of one of the worst flops we've ever seen, one that earned the phantom headbutter a straight red.

The replay has everything you'd expect from a textbook dive: the typical jockeying for position on a set piece, Vertonghen instigating contact with a fairly stiff shove of Dnipro's Roman Zozulya's chest, Zozulya retaliating by wiping his sweaty brow with Vertonghen chin, a four second interval, then Vertonghen dropping like a log, writhing in agony.


Sorry Jan, but you've now lost all those cool points you earned on Halloween.
