In an AFC Challenge Cup game between Maldives and Afghanistan, there was some, shall we say, unique footwork. With Afghanistan leading 2-1, Maldives player Ashad “Adey” Ali geared up for a penalty kick and promptly fell flat on his face. Oh no, Maldives fans were probably thinking at that moment, we lost our shot at evening up the score. But no! Adey sprang back up and launched the ball right into the net. The refs deemed it a legitimate goal.

Then Maldives ended up winning 8-7.
