In a Saudi Arabian soccer match, Al Alhi striker Amad Al Hosni made a break down the left side of the pitch with an open path to the goal. However, instead of breaking towards the goal, Al Hosni dove to the ground and acted like he had been tripped up, even though the nearest Al Alhi defender, Sultin Al Beshi, was a couple of yards behind him.
Unfortunately, the officials fell for Al Hosni's dive and gave Al Beshi a yellow card, making this play a candidate for worst flop of the year.
The way to stop these players from diving like this is to fine them. At the same time, the officials shouldn't be falling for stunts like this.
