Nothing to debate or defend here. No controversial claims to be made. Just want to show off what is arguably the most remarkable thing to happen in soccer in a generation:

Yup. 2 seconds. That’s how long it took Nawaf Al Abed to score in the Al Hilal-Al Shoalah match, which Al Hilal ended up winning 4-0.
Where does this rank on the list of stupidest goalkeeping blunders of all time? Or should we put it with Beckham’s or Xabi Alonso’s mid-field shots in the best shot of all time ranking?
That’s up to you.
(Oh, and I’ll leave you with this, making sure I add in my normal England-hate)

About Gabe Lezra

The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides with the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who in the name of charity and good will shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon those with great vengeance and with furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know that my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee. Ezekiel 25-17.
