Amazing Show of Sportsmanship on Soccer Field Causes Viral Sensation
It started when Aaron Hunt, a forward for Werder Breman of the German soccer league, was awarded a penalty kick for being taken down in the penalty area by a Nurnberg player. That is until he approached the referee and admitted that he had actually tripped over his own feet.
The referee then reversed the call, and Hunt got handshakes from the opposition players.
Not to be outdone though, later in the match a Nurnberg player corrected the referee when he wrongly awarded an inbound play to his team, rather than Werder Breman.
To this, the referee gave a thumbs up.
