Tottenham supporters tuning in to watch Belgium's World Cup clash against South Korea on Thursday evening will have been amused at the sight of seeing their defender Jan Vertonghen hit an Arsenal fan in the crowd with a wayward free-kick.
What are the chances?
With the game tentatively poised at 0-0 the 27-year-old lined up a set-piece on the edge of the box, only to smash his effort straight out of play and into the crowd behind the goal.
The unsuspecting Gunners supporter - identified by the fact he was wearing an Arsenal shirt - successfully manages to block his face by palming the ball away at the last minute, avoiding the possibility of any potential injury from the fiercely struck shot.
Laughs all round
Still, the incident will have entertained Spurs followers who wasted little time in suggesting various conspiracy theories, such as the fact that the Arsenal man was purposefully targeted by the White Hart Lane star sensing an opportunity to get one over Tottenham's north London rivals.
That's a relief...
Thankfully Marc Wilmots's side were not made to pay for Vertonghen's inaccuracy, as the Spurs star made up for his wasteful effort by scoring the decisive goal ten minutes from time to secure a 1-0 victory for the Red Devils and maintain their 100 per cent record in the competition.
After progressing to the knockout stage as winners of Group H, Belgium will now face the United States in the last 16, with the winner of the clash at Arena Fonte Nova in Salvador on July 1 facing either Argentina or Switzerland in the quarter-finals.
