Substitute Runs on Field to Save Certain Goal in Iran

A footballer rounded the goalkeeper in the Azadegan League in Iran and was set to score—only for a substitute to run on to the field and save the shot.

The referee sent off Shahrdari Yasuj's extra man and awarded an indirect free-kick.

Nassaji Mazandaran may have been denied a goal in bizarre fashion in that moment, but it didn't stop them from winning the game 2-0.
