IT IS now clear why Mark Clattenburg opted to depart England for Saudi Arabia: the comically calamitous goal-line scrambles.
Throughout Al-Faisaly’s recreation in opposition to Ohod within the Saudi Skilled League, one of the crucial surreal moments in soccer occurred.
Al-Faisaly gained 2-Zero but it surely might have been much more – if it weren’t for their very own participant.
Croatian defender Ante Puljic threw himself at a free ball however injured himself as he collided with Ohod defenders.
Goalkeeper Zouheir Laaroubi vacated his aim as he chased after the Al-Faisaly attacker who turned and despatched the ball again into the field.
Laaroubi pounced however the ball squirmed underneath him and Fahad Al Ansari appeared to poke it into the online.
His shot squeezed previous three Ohod defenders and was rolling into the empty internet. Keep in mind Pujic, the injured defender?
He is mendacity on the road and the ball rebounds off him and trickles to security.
It much more weird than the unusual brown and yellow patterned equipment that Ohod have been carrying.
You may see why Clattenburg – who give up the Prem final yr – was attracted.
