VIDEO: Habib Habibou scores after waiting near goal with injured player in Israeli Premier League game

Briefly celebrates before returning attention to stricken teammate.



Maccabi Petah Tikva’s Habib Habibou paused from tending to an injured teammate to score an 87th minute winner at Maccabi Netanya in the Israeli Premier League.

Habibou, who had a spell on loan at Leeds United in 2013, was in the six-yard box waving for the referee’s attention when the ball lands in front of him.

Suddenly presented with an open goal, he taps it in and briefly celebrates before returning his attention to the stricken player.

It was the only goal of the game at the Netanya Stadium on Saturday.
