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)
