The ground staff at the Estadio Gran Canaria scored a bit of an own-goal on Firday night, during Las Palmas’ La Liga clash with Deportivo La Coruna. With the game in full flow, the sprinkler system suddenly turned on, with the ref (spoilsport!) temporarily halting the game.
The incident happened early in the second-half, with the hosts leading 1-0…
It surely would’ve be fun just to play on? Maybe FIFA Technical Director Marco Van Basten will add ‘intermittent sprinker showers’ to his list of possible new features for the global games?
As for the game itself, it would end 1-1, with Deportivo’s Florin Andone cancelling out Mateo Garcia’s first-half strike.
