Player Fails at an Elaborate Throw-In Attempt During Irish Schoolboys' Soccer Game

A player spectacularly failed at an elaborate throw-in attempt at a schoolboys’ soccer tournament in Limerick, Ireland, on Friday, June 17.

The stunt took place during the shield final of the Schoolboys Football Association of Ireland (SFAI) UMBRO Kennedy Cup, coverage sponsored by SUBWAY, between Clare and Limerick Desmond.

In the footage, the Clare player can be seen running towards the pitch, ball in hand. He raises the ball over his head, before attempting a flip. The ball fires out in the opposite direction to the pitch.

“No way,” the commentator is heard saying in disbelief as several of his teammates put their hands on their heads. Credit: SFAI via Storyful
