Norwegian footballer Jan Gunnar Solli displayed some unorthodox ball play on Monday evening, catching a pass by lifting up his football shirt and slipping the ball inside. Sadly, the referee didn't see the funny side and promptly served Solli with a yellow card,

The former Rosenborg midfielder, who played on Norway's national team no fewer than 40 times between 2003 and 2010, was playing with his new team, Swedish second division side Hammarby, against its rivals Degerfors in Stockholm's Tele2 Arena. 
He appears to have performed the stunt as a joke, as his team was already 5-0 up on Degerfors, and the game was just minutes from ending.   
Solli, who is 32 years' old, is currently winding down his career, mixing football with his new career as a DJ, performing under the name DJ Solli. 
Here's the video. Solli's moment of glory comes after 19 seconds.
