Such has been the form of Wales' Gareth Bale of late that many would have been surprised that he failed to hit the target with a late free-kick in Sunday's 0-0 draw with Israel.
But thanks to one eagle-eyed viewer, a new reason for Bale's his missed effort has been put forward.
Cameras clearly caught Tal Ben Haim gesturing toward the ball as Bale lined up his shot.
Jinx? Curse? Or something completely different?
