[VIDEO PICK: Off the Post] Because soccer's rule-makers can't manage to come up with a suitable manner of stopping or restarting for injuries, players most handle it with the fair play tradition of kicking the ball out and then the foe deliberately delivers the ball back. But things got weird when Dinamo Tbilisi's Xisco Munoz attempted pass to the Sioni Bolnisi goalkeeper became a goal. It all ended well, though.

On the ensuing kickoff afterits accidental 1-0 lead, Tbilisi gave Sioni Bolnisi a clean path to goal.

Sioni Bolnisi ended up winning, 2-1, on an 87th minute goal.

    Isn't that "Fair play goes right?"
