DTotD: Beach footballer scores own goal then gets booked for kicking ball into opponent’s head

Matthew Evans of England's beach soccer team teaches us all a very important lesson in this video: Quit while you're ahead. Here Matthew is credited with an own goal in a match against Belarus and instead of just walking away and leaving it at that (or literally burying his head in the sand for that matter), Matthew decides to pick up the ball and release his frustration by kicking it away from the site of his shame.

But instead, he ends up accidentally kicking the ball directly at the back of an opponent's head, thus earning a yellow card to go with his own goal. Luckily there were only about eight people there to see all this, but unluckily for Matthew, YouTube exists.

This has been the Dirty Tackle of the Day: a chronicling of unfortunate events.
