Player picks bad time for klutzy moment
Player picks bad time for klutzy moment, DTotD: Japanese defender tackles himself, opponent scores, A Japanese soccer crowd roars as one defender makes a slapstick play he won't soon forget. A mere six minutes into Yokohama F. Marinos' J-League Cup match against Consadole Sapporo last week, defender Naoaki Aoyama took a tumble while running backwards to collect a ball in the middle of the pitch.
This gave Sapporo striker Hideo Oshima a leisurely one vs. one against the keeper that resulted in a goal. Sapporo ended up winning the group B match 2-1 and Aoyama learned that he should save the moonwalking for halftime.
