Muhamed Besic comes up with a new way to get sent off

Muhamed Besic has certainly proven unpredictable during his short time at Everton and the fiery Bosnian certainly lived up to his reputation with a red card during a Euro 2016 qualifier against Andorra.

The incident began when Besic was fouled by Andorra's Josep Manuel Ayala in the 63rd minute of Sunday's qualifier.

Ayala ran away before an angry Besic could react, but Victor Rodriguez Soria was the closest Andorra player to the midfielder.

Besic promptly took some chewing gum out of his mouth and hurled it in Soria's direction, earning himself a straight red card despite attempts to look innocent and pull his socks up with his back to the referee.

Soria was also shown a red card, though I'm not entirely sure why.

I can't remember a player being sent off for throwing chewing gum before and I'm not entirely what the offence should be categorised under.

Either way, with Bosnia 3-0 up at the time is was a pretty silly thing to do and means Besic will miss Bosnia's crucial game against Wales next month.

Elsewhere on Sunday Kevin Mirallas and Romelu Lukaku were unused substitutes as Belgium beat Cyprus 1-0 to stay second in Group B behind Wales, who drew 0-0 at home to Israel.

Bosnia meanwhile are now fourth in the group after their win over Andorra two points behind Israel in third.
