VIDEO: How to take a penalty on your FA Cup debut

A cup tie in Singapore was lit up by an extraordinary spot-kick from Muhammad Syafiq Sazali, who found the back of the net while also completing a somersault


It is relatively common for players to celebrate goals with acrobatics, but a player in Singapore managed to combine both actions in one move.

Yishun Sentek Mariners striker Muhammad Syafiq Sazali scored a remarkable penalty to give his side a 5-0 lead in their FA Cup tie with Kaki Bukit Sports Club at the weekend.

Syafiq struck the ball into the top corner of the net moments before performing a backflip in the same move at the Yishun Stadium.

The spectacular spot-kick was a novel way of marking the 21-year-old's first appearance for the club.
