Watch: Dutch referee 'booked' for diving by player

Jochem Kamphuis

A lighthearted moment from Holland. Justice for Gazza! 

We are part of The Trust Project What is it?

The penultimate round of Eredivisie fixtures was played on Sunday, including this match between Europa League-chasing Vitesse and bottom side Twente.

Here's referee Jochem Kamphuis taking a tumble in the second half of that game – and then being booked for simulation by one of the home side's players, Navarone Foor. 

Thankfully, Kamphuis enjoyed the moment – unlike Scotland's Dougie Smith in 1995, who famously responded to Paul Gascoigne's brandishing of a yellow card with an actual booking for the Rangers favourite. 

Hapless Twente were already on their way to a 5-0 defeat – and relegation – against Vitesse, who have done enough to earn a Europa League play-off. Chelsea loanee Mason Mount, their player of the year, got among the goals.  

Gazza would approve...
