A Vietnamese match witnessed some of the bizarre scenes Le Buzz has ever seen on a football pitch as a late penalty for Ho Chi Minh City provoked an astonishing reaction from opponents Long An.
It was 2-2 heading into injury time of Sunday’s V.League 1 match, with bottom-of-the-table Long An set to secure a rare point in the top flight, just their fifth of the season in fact.
But then the referee awarded a penalty for the home side for an apparent push in the box.
After an incredibly long delay, which witnessed prolonged protests from Long An players and staff, Victor Ormazabal finally slotted the ball home for a 3-2 lead – but only after the Long An keeper turned his back on the ball and let it in in an act of protest.
That set the tone for what followed, as Long An then proceeded to pass straight to their opponents from kick-off, allowing them to run through them and score.
You can see that moment from 5:38 in the video above – and look out for a spectacular forward roll from the keeper.
Then, amazingly, they did it again. This time flick to 6:10.
