Never Turn Your Back on the Ball

Posted on 11 Sep, 2010, by in Soccer

Hilarious incident from the King’s Cup in Morocco. During a penalty shootout, the goalkeeper is able to stop the shot, and immediately turns to the fans and celebrates. While he’s doing that, the ball, on a spin from the save, slowly makes his way into the goal. The player who shot the penalty, seemingly defeated at first, quickly points to the ref and alerts him on what’s happening. The ref says “Goal”. The player celebrates. The goalkeeper? Kind of a dumb-ass.
