WATCH: Referee makes horrendous penalty call in AFC Cup

Al Wehdat’s Ahmad Hisham was awarded a hilariously dubious penalty after he went down in the box under no contact during his side’s 1-1 AFC Cup draw with Muharraq on Tuesday.

The referee thought Muharraq’s Ismaeel Abdulatif had tripped him up, but Hisham had simply flailed in the air before going down very quickly.

Instead of sheepishly getting back to his feet and swallow his pride, the forward had the audacity to roll around on the floor – and incredibly, the hapless referee bought his theatrics.
