Video: UAE midfielder Khamis Ismaeel sees his free-kick hit the crossbar… twice
A footballer is entitled to feel a little bit unlucky if they watch a free-kick hit the bar and rebound to safety. They can feel particularly aggrieved if their free-kick hits the bar twice.
That’s what happened to United Arab Emirates player Khamis Ismaeel during his side’s match against Kuwait. His effort crashed against the bar, rebounded onto the keeper’s head, and hit the bar again.
