Sportsmanship still alive in Saudi Arabia

Al Nahdha goalkeeper Taisir Al Antaif needed 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’) responded 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.
