So what did Al Ittihad’s Brazilian striker Jóbson Leandro Pereira de Oliveira do? In a moment of Corinthian Spirit, the forward ran towards his opposition keeper, honourably knelt down before the keeper and tied the keeper’s laces – allowing the keeper to get on with the game.
However, in accordance to the rules of time wasting, the referee felt that the goalkeeper was time wasting, and rewarded the other team with a freekick.
But Al Ittihad wasn't going to allow this to happen! Al Ittihad’s free kick taker, Leandro Bonfim, gently kicked the ball wide of the post on purpose. Although new to the club, he had embraced the Jeddah football club ethos of sportsmanship, as did the crowd.
Supporters form both teams applauded Bonfirm’s decision and it was a wonderful moment of Corinthian Spirirt.
