Russian Soccer Referee Gets Nailed In The Face By A Ball: Video
A Russian Premier-Liga match between Amkat and Kuban resulted in an unexpected event. The situation turned so that the referee of the match Almira Kayumov went on to unintentionally become part of the action.
As per the reports, as the game resumed after the brief stoppage with a free kick from the player, the referee who apparently seemed unprepared for the resume of the game was hit by the ball on the head.
Well, it was a funny show for the audience who all burst into laughter as the ball hit Kayumov who was not at all ready for the resume. The incident was so funny that one of the Russian audience made a statement saying “Maybe the referee needs a vodka shot.” The suggestion was made as a humor to get the referee over from the discomfort and awkwardness caused by the incident.
