Despite Japan easing to a 4-0 World Cup Qualification victory over Thailan on Tuesday, defender YutoNagatomo had a moment he would rather forget.
As the visitors delivered the ball into the Japan box,Nagatomo had the easy job of knocking it away from goal.
His feeble clearance rebounded off a nearby team-mate, however, before an ulmighty slip from Nagatomoled to a scramble with the opposing forward.
Nagatomo then threw himself between the striker and the ball, leading to a Thailand penalty.
Luckily forNagatomo, Japan goalkeeper EijiKawashima saved the resulting spot-kick.
