Sydney FC faced Western Sydney Wanderers in the A-League on Saturday, and the match turned on a very unusual moment in the 52nd minute.

With Wanderers leading 1-0, Mark Bridge stepped to the penalty spot with a chance to double the lead. Sydney keeper Vedran Janjetovic walked to his left and signaled to where he intended to dive. Bridge proceeded to test Janjetovic's intentions by playing it exactly there, and well...see for yourself (action in video starts at 0:45):

Sydney FC would harness the momentum gained from the stop, going on to win the match 3-1.
