Vincent Aboubakar performs worst dive ever seen in football?

Published 1 Comments

The World Cup may be the stage for some of the best footballing exhibits we’ve ever witnessed, but Cameroon youngster Vincent Aboubakar has offered a perfect example as to how it can also be a source of major frustration - at least in the warm-up games anyway.

The 22-year-old forward delivered perhaps one of the worst dives cameras have ever caught when his national side came up against Paraguay yesterday in their latest fixture ahead of the Brazil this summer, and it’s sure to have damaged his burgeoning reputation.

Dribbling towards the Paraguay goal Aboubakar surged into the penalty area before sensing that contact was imminent from the nearest defender. The only problem was the simple fact that it wasn’t.

Subsequently the Lorient star went tumbling to the ground in theatrical fashion, only to be handed a rightful yellow card by a referee who was obviously unconvinced by his antics. Watch the video above to see the outrageous spectacle.
