This is the hilarious moment a bungling goalkeeper celebrated a dramatic penalty shootout miss – only for the ball to bounce back into the net off the crossbar in a freak goal.
The match between Bangkok Sports Club and Satri Angthong had gone to a shootout after normal time ended 2-2 on Saturday afternoon.
The cup game was in the sudden death stage and tied at 19-19 when the last man – the goalkeeper – stepped up to take a spot kick for Bangkok Sports.
He hit the crossbar which sent the opposition goalkeeper running away and jumping in celebration, while the penalty taker held his head in despair.
But the ball flew into the air and when it landed the backspin caused it to slowly bounce back into an empty goal as keeper frantically ran back to try to save it.
Emotions quickly changed and it was the goalkeeper who threw the ball down in anger while the scorer celebrated his freak goal.
Spectator Phakawat Kunpatee, 18, had been watching his friends take part in the game when he recorded the lucky penalty.
He said: ‘The penalty shoot out was going on for a long time. Both teams were scoring every time. They were good quality.

‘Then it looked like the other team had lost because they missed. Everybody thought it was over and the crowd was cheering.
‘The ball bounced and then started going backwards. The crowd saw it but the goalkeeper didn’t. It went back into the goal then the other team missed.
‘It was funny, but the goalkeeper felt a bit silly after. He looked like he was going to cry.’
Satri Angthong then missed their next shot to send Bangkok Sports through to the final to be played later next month.
The match took place at the Queen Sirikit Anniversary Stadium in Pathumthani province neighbouring the capital Bangkok.
