VIDEO: Referee Kevin Friend accidentally tosses coin over his head ahead of FA Cup final between Man City and Watford

A flick too far.



Referee Kevin Friend accidentally flicked a coin over his head during the toss before Saturday’s FA Cup final between Manchester City and Watford.

Gathered with his fellow matchday officials and the respective team captains on the pitch at Wembley, Friend threw the coin up in the air in time-honoured fashion.

To the particular amusement of Watford skipper Troy Deeney, he tosses it backwards over his head, while City’s Vincent Kompany watches with a wry smirk.

Pep Guardiola’s Man City became the first men’s team in British football history to win the domestic treble as they thrashed their opponents 6-0.

They sealed their victory with goals from David Silva, Kevin De Bruyne and two apiece for Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling.
