These Soccer Players Will Restore Your Faith In Humanity With Their Sportsmanship (Video)

Good sportsmanship may be a lost thing in sports today with sh*t talking and Twitter beef reaching an all time high, but during a recent soccer match in Saudi Arabia, we saw something that truly reminds us what playing fair is all about.

In a game between Al Nahdha and Al Ittihad, goalkeeper Tasir Al Antaif was set to clear the ball when he noticed his shoelaces became undone.

Wearing goalie gloves, he was hesitant in making a move when a Brazilian opponent by the name of Jobson stepped in to tie his shoes. The two shared a nice moment immediately after slapping hands, but the referee called a delay of game before Tasir could get the kick off.

Instead of taking over the possession, Al Ittihad players intentionally kicked the ball out of bounds to basically say f*ck you to the ref. This was especially impressive considering that the game was tied 2-2 going into the 60th minute. Well done, gentlemen.
