Video: Josh Onomah Given a Seriously Odd Red Card During England U20 Win

England’s Under-20 side reached a World Cup semi-final earlier today but if they’re to go any further in the tournament, they’ll need to do it without Spurs winger Josh Onomah.

The 20-year-old has become a permanent fixture in the England side throughout this run but Onomah willbe missing for the mouthwatering clash with Italy in the last four after picking up a red card against Mexico – in pretty odd circumstances.

As you’ll see in the clip below, Onomah was the man in possession of the ball, trying to take the game to the Mexicans, when he was confronted by two defenders.

At that point, well, it becomes pretty difficult to explain exactly what happened next:


It seems Onomah managed to land on the ankle of his opponent as he hurdles a challenge, and whether or not it was deliberate, the referee decided to give him his marching orders.

What d you think of the incident? Does it warrant a red card?
