Is This The Funniest Attempt At Time-Wasting Ever?
Default

A fainting grandmother and a misbehaving substitute. The 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier game between Costa Rica and Panama was full of Shenanigans. Did you catch the action?

In Latin America, football is more comparable to a religion than a sport – that is how serious they are about it. Attesting to this were the series of bizarre events that took place in the World Cup qualifier between Costa Rica and Panama on Wednesday morning.

With the score standing at 2-1 to Panama, emotions ran high as the narrow lead could quickly be cancelled out, which would mean the end of the road for their World Cup ambitions. As the game reached its dying moments, everyone did their best to run down the clock and secure Los Canaleros' place in Russia.

First it was the substitute player who ran to the edge of the touchline and kicked the ball into the crowd just as the match official was signalling that there would be three minutes of added time.

Check it out!

Not to be outdone, though, this elderly woman ran on to the area of play and feigned a fainting spell. When tracked down after the game, the woman happily confessed to having put on the display in an effort to ensure her country qualified for the tournament.

After all of that, Panama managed to retain their lead and qualify for the World Cup, by hook or by crook. It will certainly be exciting to see how their fans behave in Russia next year!

What do you think of these fans and their time-wasting attempts?

The substitute who kicked the ball away was supposed to be given a life time ban from playing international games...his contact is not in line with FIFA FAIR PLAY RULE..
