No one wants to look like a fool, but when that person happens to be a soccer player whose number one job is to prevent an opposing player from scoring, that’s a little bit more important.

So when Albanian defender Ergys Kace got beat by Switzerland’s Valon Behrami in a Euro 2016 match, Kace did what anyone would do as a last ditch effort—rip down Behrami’s pants to try and slow him down.

The plan kind of backfired, though, as the Swiss player was too strong to be stopped just because he had no pants on, with Kace, ultimately, having to take him down with a hard tackle for a foul.

A desperate man will do whatever he can, sometimes.
