Moroccan side Youssoufia Berrechid conceded just about the stupidest penalty you’re ever likely to see during Tuesday’s top flight clash against Mouloudia Oujda.
After scoring to make it 1-0 in the first half, Mohammed El Fakih gathered his teammates and attempted to celebrate by mimicking Mario Balotelli’s selfie celebration from a week or two ago.
El Fakih logged into Instagram and attempted to record a ‘live’ clip of himself and his chums cheering on the touchline.
However, as the Youssoufia players were mucking around, the referee allowed play to restart and Oujda capitalised by launching directly into an attack, which resulted in them winning a scrambled penalty.
The award for most ridiculous penalty conceded goes to Youssoufia Berrechid. Mohammed El Fakih and his teammates celebrates 1-0 by doing a “Balotelli selfie”. Meanwhile, Mouloudia Oujda restart the game and get a penalty. The Instagram story was never uploaded 😂 #Botola pic.twitter.com/i2OscIsEcX
