WATCH: Rafinha comically nutmegs Ribery

Syria were welcomed to the Seoul World Cup Stadium as part of Asia's qualifiers and, having gone a goal down, looked certain to equalise after veteran striker Firas Al-Khatib found himself one-on-one after 71 minutes.

Clean through, Al-Khatib's technique was flawless as he blasted at goal, only for the ball to ricochet off Sun-Tae's forehead. Ouch.

Fair play to the keeper, however, who played on as if nothing happened. We're fairly certain he'll feel that one in the morning, though.
