[VIDEO PICK: Off the Post]
What's a goalkeeper to do when he has to tie his shoe in the middle of the game -- an impossible task with gloves on? It may have been
lost on the referee, but the sportsmanship displayed during Al Nahdha-Al Ittihad in Saudi Arabia was quite touching.
Al Nahdha goalkeeper Taisir Al Antaif
noticed he had a
loose shoelace and hesitated releasing the ball. Al Ittihad's Brazilian striker Jobson ran toward the keeper -- and fixed the laces.
Referee Abdulaziz Al Funaitel
responded with a delay-of-game call, but on the ensuing free kick Al Ittihad simply stroked the ball out of bounds.
