VIDEO: Al Wehdat keeper’s nightmare blunder

Amer Sahfi's blushes were spared by a late equaliser in Oman as his team stayed on course in the AFC Cup

Mistakes happen, but if you’re going to make one, it’s probably best not to do it during one of your side’s biggest matches of the season.

That is certainly how Al Wehdat goalkeeper Amer Sahfi’ will be feeling after his incredible blunder in an AFC Cup match against Saham earlier this week.

The goalkeeper seemed poised to receive a relatively routine ball that had spun up into the air, yet somehow he contrived to misjudge its flight and allow it to spin out of his hands and, according to the assistant referee, over the line. 

It was a mistake that might have cost his side dearly in Oman, but with six minutes left Baha’ Faisal levelled matters to partially spare the shot-stopper’s blushes.

Al Wehdat continue to top Group C with two matches remaining, with a match against Al Nejmeh to follow in a fortnight.
