In what was supposed to be a 'friendly' encounter between the United Arab Emirates and New Zealand in Saudi Arabia yesterday, Kiwi defender Ben Sigmund shocked supporters and opposition players alike with a shocking stamp on Ali Mabkhout that earned him a straight red card.

In a game played out in almost unbearably warm temperatures at King Fahd International Stadium, Sigmund appeared to take his considerable frustration out on his opponent as New Zealand slumped to a surprising 2-0 defeat against opponents currently ranked 30 places below them in the four-nation OSN Cup encounter. 

The Wellington Phoenix centre-back is likely to regret his totally rash and utterly deplorable actions this morning, with Mabkhout, who plays for Al Jazira at club level, lucky to have avoided serious injury. 

Watch video footage of Sigmund's shocking act above.
