Spotted during last week’s spellcheck-battering Iranian second division tie between Nassaji Mazandaran and Shahrdari Yasuj, in which one of Yasuj’s substitute senses impending danger following a calamitous defensive cock-up and curtails his warm-up behind the goal to make an heroic, last-ditch goal-saving clearance from underneath his own crossbar…
Nice that he still used his head. The man’s obviously got principles.
Weirdly, the meddling substitute was sent off while Nassaji were only bestowed with a free-kick inside the box rather than the goal being allowed to stand – not that it mattered much in the end, they still won 2-0.
