A modern day Corinthian Spirit moment is always a fantastic sight to behold, even more so when the moment takes place in a youth match.
When an Altinordu attacker was thought to be offside, a Balikesir defender reportedly heard a whistle in the distance, and preemptively picked the ball up for a free-kick. The players continued to play on, only for the referee to award a penalty for deliberate hand-ball. In a moment of great sportsmanship, penalty taker Bariscan Altunbas turned and kicked the ball out for a throw in to the applauds of fans on both sides!
You might be interested to learn that Altinordu’s entire club ethos is to eschew expensive signings in favour of schooling and homing their own players through their various academy sides, with the long-term goal being to have a completely homegrown side competing in the Turkish Super Lig by the 2019/20 season. If the Sportsmanship shown by this young side is anything to go by, then Altinordu will sure to have plenty more Corinthian Moments!
