This is what happens when fair play goes horribly wrong

June 7th, 2014

It’s common practice for a team to kick the ball out of bounds when an opponent is injured, and then for an opposing player to return it to them. They teach that to you when you’re a kid: play fair. 

It’s usually a straight-forward event, and the match continues without further incident.

But sometimes this courteous gesture goes, horribly, terribly wrong:

And because this happened in the 90th minute of the match, Polonia Warsaw wasn’t able to continue the fair play tradition and walk the ball back into their own net (though, to be fair, it wasn’t really their fault the keeper was daydreaming).

Welcome to the blooper reel, Blekitni Gabin goalkeeper. You’ll be on it forever.
