Sportsmanship still alive in Saudi Arabia

Al Nahdha goalkeeper Taisir Al Antaif┬áneeded to tie up a shoelace and was thankful to Al Ittihad’s Brazilian striker Jobson, who did the job for him.

Referee Abdulaziz Al Funaitel (which apparently translates from Arabic itno English as ‘petty jobsworth’)┬áresponded by booking the goalkeeper for time wasting.

Al Ittiha, rather than take advantage of the fortuitously awarded free-kick, opted to do the decent thing and simply rolled the ball out of play.
