In which, during the Asian Champions League quarter-final tie between Sepahan FC and Al-Alhi, one of the Sepahan players casually tosses a bit of litter from the pitch during a brief stoppage in play, only for the object to explode on in impact in the corner…

Phew! We believe that’s what’s referred to in the trade as a ‘near miss’.

The two officials’ reaction to the blast is obviously protocol given the situation, but that doesn’t mean it ain’t priceless: “RUN! RUN AWAY AND DON’T LOOK BACK!”
