Weird stuff. I don't know if I've ever seen a ball spin back like that..Of course there's no excuse for the keeper not paying attention either.

In a tense match between Maghreb Fez and FAR Rabat to decide who reaches the quarterfinals of Morocco's Coupe du Trone, they had to go to a penalty shootout to decide a winner. During that shootout, FAR goalkeeper Khalid Askri thought he came up with a big stop and immediately began to celebrate his triumph, turning his back on the goal, patting his chest and kissing his badge in an abundance of pride and dripping self-confidence.

What he didn't see is that the ball had some wicked spin on it and actually bounced back into the goal after his initial block. After some confusion, the referee awarded the goal and Askri's team ended up losing the shootout 7-6.

sometimes we allow our egos, and emotions, to over rule our "objective" side

Your video has been removed, so before this thread gets closed anyway I'll post a completely unrelated video of a woman soccer player who's got her act together

Calvin Johnson (Detroit Lions receiver) can commiserate.

haha that keeper is an idiot! you can't take your eye off the ball when you save it and start walking away! serves him right lol that girls got some skill like, thats another thing about people who don't like football (soccer), the best soccer players in the world, cristiano ronaldo, messi, kaka, xavi, iniesta, gerard, fabregas, bale, van der vaart etc are more technically skillful than the stars of other sports, you may deny this but if you watched these players on top form and realised how difficult the things they do are, you would appreciate that they are gifted individuals with bags of skill, and plus it's great to watch
