Chinese Goalkeeper Gives Up Goal While Taking Water Break

We hope he at least quenched his thirst, because this Chinese soccer goalie is in hot water for allowing the opposing team to score a goal while he took a water break.

Sui Weijie of Chinese Super League team Chongqing Lifan let Ding Haifeng of rival Liaoning kick the ball into the net after a hastily set-up free kick, the Telegraph reported. Even as the ball went in, Weijie could be seen leisurely gulping down water.

"I made a terrible mistake," he said, according to news outlets.

He was fined 50,000 yuan (about $8,000) for his brain freeze and the team has considered cutting him, the paper noted. The game ended in a 1-1 tie.
