13-year-old Footballer Deliberately Misses Penalty In Disagreement To Referee’s Decision


The club captain of the Galatasaray football club’s under-14 team has earned praise with a rare act of sportsmanship as he deliberately missed a penalty kick following what he believed was a wrong decision by the referee.

The 13-year-old player identified as Beknaz Almazbekov, had dribbled inside from the left and fell down under pressure from an Istanbulspor defender in the box.

The referee gave a penalty kick, however in response, Almazbekov disagreed.

With his team already winning 1-0, he rejected the opportunity to double their lead and intentionally kicked the ball out of play.

The match took place on March 24.

Almazbekov’s side eventually beat Istanbulspor 3-0.
