West Ham United's on-loan defender Reece Oxford was sent off during Augsburg's 5-1 thrashing at Freiburg on Saturday.

The 20-year-old centre half started for the Bundesliga strugglers but was dismissed in the first minute of added-on time following a poor challenge on Freiburg forward Janik Haberer.
