Super Eagles goalkeeper Francis Uzoho was dismissed in the 23rd minute despite ending up on the winning side for Cyprus club, Anorthosis Famagusta.
Anorthosis won the encounter 3-0 home against Alki Oroklinis in a relegation play-off clash at home.
The goals were scored by Vincent Bessat, Michal Duris and Danijel Pranjic for the home side.
The sending off was the first expulsion of Uzoho’s career.
He will miss the next three games against Ermis Aradippou, Enosis Paralimni and Pafos FC.
The 20-year-old has made three appearances for the club since joining on loan from Deportivo La Coruna.
