You often see British players in European and international games suffer from this: they have been fouled and either have a bit of a knock or just want to waste a bit of time, only for an opponent to hoist them back on the feet.

That was the situation in last week’s African Champions League semi-final. TP Mazembe of DR Congo have just six minutes left to hold onto a comfortable 3-1 cushion from the first-leg. With the score at 0-0, Algeria’s JS Kabylie are eager to get a move on.

Sensing that their opponents are running down the clock, JS Kabylie’s Nabil Yaâlaoui is eager to get the player he’s just fouled back to his feet as soon as possible. But the TP Mazembe player has other ideas.
