A water bottle annoyed Fabian Schar in Newcastle’s 1-1 draw with Wolves on Sunday.
The Magpies defender’s move was intercepted by a rogue water bottle within the early levels of the match at Molineux.
Schar was seen complaining to referee Lee Mason, who remarkably awarded a free-kick to Newcastle!
The humorous incident was comparable – albeit in no way pricey to Wolves – to the time when Darren Bent sealed a 1-Zero win for Sunderland over Liverpool in 2009 as his shot deflected in off a seashore ball.
The previous England striker’s effort was heading straight at Reds goalkeeper Pepe Reina, earlier than the seashore ball, which had been thrown on to the pitch by a Liverpool fan, intervened.
Final yr, explaining the aim, Bent advised talkSPORT: “My first thought was at all times simply to hit the goal. In case you hit the goal, something can occur and… effectively… look what occurred!
“Liverpool followers at all times come as much as me and say, ‘I’ve by no means forgiven you for scoring that seashore ball aim’.
“However I’ve at all times stated, ‘what did you anticipate me to do?’ I didn’t put it there – they threw it!
“One in all their followers threw it on to the pitch, so that you’ve obtained guilty one among your personal!”
Newcastle got here from behind to salvage a draw in opposition to Wolves because of Jacob Murphy’s 89th-minute free-kick.
Wolves took the lead by Jimenez simply 9 minutes earlier than Murphy’s intelligent set-piece.
