If you've ever wondered why soccer players celebrate goals in the opponent's half of the field, well it's mostly because all of them except the goalkeeper are already there. But it's also because the other team cannot kickoff while there are opposing players in their half. This is something the all the players on Mozambique's Ferroviario Maputo presumably know, but forgot while caught up in the excitement of scoring a free kick against Zambia's K-Stars. An especially vigorous shake of the fist at Ferroviario's No. 5, who saw his team wasn't prepared and waved for them to get back into position, yet still threw the ball to the referee.
