Luxembourg Player Takes the Worst, Most Hilarious Throw-in During Italy Friendly

Mark PattersonUK Staff WriterJune 4, 2014

Luxembourg should be celebrating after the minnows pulled off a remarkable 1-1 draw against Italy in Wednesday night's international friendly—but one player will still have cause for embarrassment after a throw-in for the ages.

Chris Philipps went over to launch a long throw toward the goal from near the corner flag, but the end result was the ball going almost straight up in the air while Philipps fell over.

The clip has since gone viral, of course.
