Video: Danish fan spectacularly fails to return ball to pitch

Posted by Chris Wright

Spotted during the 1-1 draw between Nordsjaelland and Randers FC in the Danish Superliga on Sunday -- we join the action as one overconfident fan behind the goal attempts to return a wayward shot pitchward with a nonchalant flick of his heel while continuing with his phone conversation.
