3. Serge Djiehoua (Gylfadas vs Olympiacos Volou), 7 seconds

The big Ivorian striker's debut for third-tier Greek football club Gylfadas in 2013 was memorable for all the wrong reasons. Djiehoua's coach was probably hoping for an instant impact when he threw him on in the 82nd minute with the team trailing 3-1 – and make the headlines he did.

The 30-year-old striker kicked off in the centre circle, muttered a quick prayer as he ran back into his own half before getting tangled with Athanasios Pindonis, who went down like a sack of potatoes. Out came the red card and off jogged Djiehoua, who at least found the incident funny enough to laugh at himself.
