At the height of a tense penalty shootout between Termeno and Dro for promotion to the 6th level of Italian football, the goalkeeper took his eye off the ball as he celebrated a rival player blasting his attempt off the bar.

But the momentum of the powerful shot saw the ball bounce and begin to spin backwards, before slowly trickling over the goal line behind the unaware goalkeeper.
