What appeared to be a timely save for keeper Khalid Askri ended up one of the worst cases of premature celebrating soccer has ever seen. Maghreb Fez and FAR Rabat, two of Morocco‘s top division teams, were squaring off in a game that I have absolutely never heard of entitled the “Throne Cup” when Askri stopped a penalty kick — or did he? He certainly thought he had, as he began walking away and kissing the logo on his shirt in celebration. The ball, however, was not finished rolling.

Worse than English goalie Robert Green’s miscue? Nah, no way.
