Dodgy goings-on from Russia here, with footage from the recent third tier game between Terek Gronzy II and Alaniya II in which the home side were gifted three incredibly generous penalties in the space of just under two minutes of actual game time.
When we say “incredibly generous”, what we mean of course is “laughably soft and almost definitely fraudulent”.
That said, however, the Chechen side did their level best to try and nullify the referee’s incompetence (to put it politely) by managing to miss the first two of their gift-wrapped spot-kicks in truly wretched style…
What’s “back-hander” in Russian?
Amazing enough., the game finally ended 2-0 to Terek despite the staggering incompetence from absolutely everybody on show.
