Kinect Fail

My co-worker Azzad just bought an X-box Kinect. I wanted to check it out, but suddenly I don't feel like challenging him to a game anymore...

Khalid Askri - The Unluckiest Goalkeeper in the World! Twice!

Goalkeepers rarely get any glory so they really need to lap it up in a penalty shootout - but FAR Rabat's Khalid Askri probably went too far by completely ignoring the fact his save counted for nothing because of the spin on the ball.

In one of the strangest moments ever in a penalty shootout, 29-year-old Askri appeared to have saved a penalty low to his left and turned away to celebrate for his fans.More: See Emmanuel Eboue's bizarre touch-line warm-up. However, while his back was turned he failed to spot the spin on the ball taking it back towards the goal-line and into the net. The opportunist Maghreb Fez player, who originally thought he had missed, took great delight in pointing it out to the referee, who was forced to give the goal - much to the annoyance of Askri.The 'phantom' save cost Askri's side dearly too - as they went on to lose 7-6 in the shootout to be eliminated in the last-16 of the Moroccan league's Coupe du TrĂ´ne.

Glentoran goal nominated for Puskas Award

(from Soccernet.com)

Unknown Glentoran striker Matty Burrows could soon be rubbing shoulders with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi after his back-heeled 92nd minute winner against Portadown last month became an internet sensation.

The 25-year-old's audacious jumping back-heel volley received more than three million views on YouTube and has now been shortlisted for FIFA's new goal of the year gong, the Puskas Award.
The winner of the award will be whoever receives the most public votes on FIFA's website and, as the goal featured in this column back in October, it would only be right to urge you to back the Irish Premiership player when voting begins later this month.

Last year's inaugural Puskas Award was scooped by Ronaldo's 40-yard winner for Manchester United against FC Porto in the Champions League.

Do your bit, vote!!! :)
