Video: Tunisian goalkeeper behind goal collecting ball when the ball the other players are using crosses his goalmouth

It has been a very bad year for north African goalies switching off at completely the wrong time. This crazy example from Tunisian keeper Nadim Thabet is the latest to come to our attention.

The Etoile Sahel goalie foolishly assumes that the ball is going out of play for a goal-kick. He decides to steal the ball boy’s job and head behind his net to collect another ball, only for opponents Kairouan to keep the ball in play. Some resolute defending stops a goal being conceded, but Thabet is left to watch the incident unfold from being the goal!

    Love it. Forget golden goals, lets put two balls in play during extra-time!
