5 of the funniest moments in football in 2018
Every year, there are always comical moments. In 2017, we listed some, and now again as we welcome the new year, we're giving the chance for all football fans to experience some laughter as we reflect on 2018.
2019 may have already arrived, but we're not ready to leave just yet, as departing before providing you with some classic, unique and hilarious moments that occurred last year would be criminal.
From throw-in muck-ups, to a goalkeeping error in Ethiopia that one can only imagine, this list is diverse in errors and reactions, and shows football as a whole with fans, players as well as ball boys receiving unwanted attention.
The trio above isn't featured, but after reading this list and watching the videos linked, we reckon you'll be reacting in the same manner as they were in the photo. With that being said, here's the 5 funniest moments in football 2018.
#5 Skilled acrobat... perhaps not the best throw-in taker
Tumbling and fumbling. Some people are great gymnasts, or perhaps even acrobatic in general. This audacious attempt on the world's biggest stage successfully put Milad Mohammadi on the map, but for all the wrong reasons. Instead of being remembered for having a great World Cup, like none before him, he'll always be remembered as the person who failed a throw-in on the stage where it most matters.
He did it against Spain, so some lucky, world-class players got to witness it first-hand, and unfortunately for the thrower, that drew some attention. This video made the rounds on social media in June, so you might have already seen it, but even so, take a look at the video!
