In a recent international matchup between The Maldives and Afghanistan in the AFC Challenge Cup, Maldives player Ashad Ali Adubarey had a chance to put his team ahead in a critical game-deciding shootout.
What happened next was both hilariously embarrassing and awesome.
As AdubareyÂ approached the ball to take the kick, heÂ tripped over his own feet and fell flat on his face. Yet Adubarey had yet to touch the ball, meaning that it was still live.
While the Afghanistan keeper looked on in obvious bemusement,Â Adubarey rose to his feet and calmly deposited the ball into the goal for the unusualÂ goal.
After watchingÂ the hilarious flop over and over, one has to wonder if the Maldives player actually tripped on purpose to throw the goaltender for a loop.
