Ref thwarts hidden ball trick

[VIDEO PICK: Off the Post] Norwegian midfielder Jan Gunnar Solli of Swedish club Hammarby tucked the ball under his shirt to evade a opponent -- and it kinda worked until the ref blew his whistle

Hammarby was leading Degerfors 5-0 with three minutes left when Solli pulled the shirt trick as Lawal Ismail moved in for the ball.

The ref, however, was not amused and pulled the yellow card.
