VIDEO: Adelaide United star gets away with ridiculous dive

The teenage midfielder tumbled over a challenge from Thomas Kristensen of Brisbane Roar, with his theatrics earning his opponent a yellow card

Adelaide United midfielder Riley McGhee produced a moment he would rather forget during an A-League encounter with Brisbane Roar.

The teenager saw his side emerge 2-1 winners on the day, with a dramatic finish to the contest delivering a decisive 97th-minute penalty.

Brisbane goalkeeper Michael Theo was sent off in the incident leading up to the spot kick, reducing both sides to 10 men following an earlier red card for Adelaide midfielder Marcelo Carrusca.

Another card brandished during an entertaining encounter was flashed in the direction of Thomas Kristensen, although the Roar’s Danish midfielder can feel hard done by.

Replays showed that he got nowhere near McGhee, despite his opponent taking a theatrical tumble to the turf which helped to con the referee into making the wrong call.
