Ex-Premier League official Mark Clattenburg was faced with a predicament he surely didn’t come across in referee school during the latter stages of Wednesday night’s clash between Al Feiha and Al Fateh in the Saudi King’s Cup.
With the score level at 1-1 after 90 minutes, the engrossing encounter duly went to extra-time.
However, Clattenburg then had to temporarily suspend play just five minutes into additional time when the evening call for prayer echoed across the King Salman bin Abdulaziz Sport City Stadium from a nearby mosque…
Just when you thought you’d seen it all. We sincerely hope Clattenburg remembered to add on time for holy stoppages.
For the record, Al Feiha went on to secure a late 2-1 win thanks to an 118th-minute strike from Sami Al Khaibari.
