Frustrated Indonesian fan invades football field and tries to score (video)
A football fan in Indonesia was so frustrated with his national team’s poor performance against Oman that he ran onto the field and tried to score a goal.
Hendri Mulyadi, 25, later apologized but his courage in taking matters into his own hands has become a buzz on Facebook and Twitter.
He picked up the ball deep in Oman’s half late in the game and ran down the wing, but his attempt to score ended in failure after Oman’s goalie blocked the shot.
Security personnel eventually overpowered him.
In the end, Indonesia bowed out to Oman 1-2 before the home crowd—the first time that the country failed to qualify for the final round of the Asian Cup since 1992.
