Footy fan tries to score at match

Hendri Mulyadi on the pitch at Jakarta

A football fan in Indonesia in south-east Asia became so fed up with his team's bad performance that he ran onto the pitch and tried to score a goal.

Hendri Mulyadi took matters into his own hands when the Indonesian team were heading for a 1-2 defeat against Oman.

He sprinted onto the pitch, got control of the ball and raced down the wing towards the goal.

But his attempt to score ended in failure when the Oman keeper blocked the shot.

Police eventually stopped him and he later apologised on a website.
