A-League players have to fix broken net during match

Players from Melbourne Victory trying to fix the broken net was the most bizarre moment from last week’s A-League.

In the match between Melbourne Victory and the Central Coast Mariners on Sunday, in which the hosts earned the 5-2 victory, the ball hit the side of the net and began to unravel after winger Leroy George’s strike in the 64th minute.

After this comical moment, the match was delayed for few minutes as the Victory players tried to repair the dislodged netting without the support from the ground staff.

Because of the height of the nets, the players had to lift Kosta Barbarouses up, so the New Zealand international could apply the duct tape to secure the net.

Laying on the broken netting issue, the match was extended to the record of 17 minutes of stoppage time.
