JS Kabylie defender Ali Rial scored a free-kick from inside his own half v USM Alger, terrible keeping helped

The big match on Saturday in Algeria saw league leaders USM Alger claim a hard-fought 3-2 win over 5th-placed JS Kabylie.

Kabylie took the lead in the only the fifth minute in eye-grabbing circumstances as veteran defender Ali Rial scored a free-kick from 55-yards out.

Rial had Alger keeper Mohamed Lamine Zemmamouche to thank for scoring his long-range set-play.

The 33-year-old JS Kabylie defender spotted Zemmamouche off his line, so the #5 pinged his free-kick straight at the Alger goal. Whilst on target, Rial’s effort looked like being saved by the home keeper as he managed to backtrack in time to get hands on the ball before it crossed the line.

Incredibly, though, Zemmamouche appeared to have the limp wrists of a newborn baby, and Rial’s free-kick ended up crossing the goalline.
