One of the funniest penalties ever was scored during Maldives v Afghanistan in the AFC Challenge Cup
- May 30, 2014
Over in Asia on Thursday, the Maldives beat Afghanistan on penalties to come third in the AFC Challenge Cup.
During the shootout the Maldives scored one of the funniest penalties ever, as during the build-up to the spot-kick one player fell, literally, on his face.
As the Maldives’ #12 ran up to take his penalty he slipped flat on his belly, only to quickly get up and bury the ball past a distracted Afghan keeper.
Whether the penalty should have stood according to the laws of the game was a matter up for debate.
