How not to give away a goal…

Yahoo! New Zealand Sport Updated September 14, 2012, 8:30 pm

There has been plenty of action on the international football circuit over the last two weeks, but nothing quite as entertaining as this gem.

The lesson on 'how not to give away a goal' was given when Tunisia visited Sierra Leone's National Stadium for the third round of the Africa Cup of Nations.

Things were going well for the visitors- that was until striker Saber Khelifa kicked the ball into his own face and in turn set up a goal for the opposition.

The 25-year-old, who plays for Ligue 1 side Evian, attempted the simple overhead clearance, but failed to miss his own face.

Luckily for Khelifa, despite giving away the easy goal, the side managed to pull off a 2-2 draw.

    Sigh, one more time for Phillip. They have to play the island nations to get to the next phase of qualifying. Hope it sinks in this time.

    Taking on New Caledonia, Solomon Islands, Tahiti yeah tui ,all dull whites are really good. I'm glad that soccer is a minority sport in thios country . The only reason why its popular is because mummies don;t like having little johnnie hurt by big mean , nasty poly boys playing rugby............Rugby is more skill full, physical,is a all encompassing team sport. Soccer ......"are you avin a larf.........."AYE WOOFIE

    Why is Yahoo always putting down Football in this country. You never see any mishaps in any other sport being highlighted as much as they do Football.
