BBC Sport - Asian Cup: Ballboy helps China goalkeeper save penalty
Ballboy helps 'keeper save penalty
- From the section Football
A ballboy helps Chinese goalkeeper Wang Dalei to save a penalty kick from Saudi Arabia's Naif Hazazi in China's 1-0 AFC Asian Cup group stage win in Brisbane.
Budding goalkeeper Stephan White, 12, became something of a cult hero in China and was invited to meet the team after his intervention. He says will be torn when Australia's Socceroos take on China in Thursday's quarter-final, once again in Brisbane.
Stephan's mother Suzie has revealed that her son has been selected as a ballboy for the crucial match, but that he will not be stationed behind either the Australian or Chinese goal in case of another penalty being awarded.
