The Persian Gulf League game between Esteghlal and Rah Ahan was decided by a comical goalkeeping gaffe.
An Esteghlal free-kick was played into the Rah Ahan box and met by a header, which was comfortably gathered by Rah Ahan stopper Farshid Karimi.
As he went to follow his dive through, though, he clumsily got this head stuck between one of his own player’s legs, and the ball spilled out of his hands in all the madness.
Majidi poked the loose ball in, and Esteghlal ran out 1-0 winners.
Unfortunate, but a nonetheless EPIC FAIL!
