Video: Comedy own goal from Qatar v Egypt

Posted by - December 17, 2010 - Football videos, International


As a defender, it is always best to keep your goalkeeper as far away from trouble as possible with your backpasses. That means passing to his favoured foot and off-target wherever possible.

Egypt defender Wael Gomaa ignored most of the basic rules during his side’s defeat to Qatar yesterday. We’re not 100 per cent that goalkeeper Abdelwahed El Sayed isn’t left-footed, but we certainly know that his left foot isn’t that long.

Cue embarrassing own goal and defeat to the 2022 World Cup hosts.
