Football in Australia isn't often in the spotlight but on Saturday morning it came up with some unbelievable moments in a 2-2 draw.
It was West Sydney Wanderers who produced the real highlights of the game, as they came from behind on two occasions to earn their point.
However it was a sequence where they failed to score that stole the headlines, in a moment that would leave you screaming "THAT WOULDN'T HAPPEN IN REAL LIFE!" if it happened to you on FIFA 21.
Former Reading goalkeeper Adam Federici managed to make three back-to-back-to-back saves from the Wanderers, another shot was blocked by a defender and finally the ball struck the crossbar and bounced clear.

Aleksandar Jovanovic opened the scoring for the hosts from a corner after just 18 minutes and they held onto the lead into the second half.
Then another former Premier League player took centre stage for Sydney's first equaliser. Former West Brom midfielder Graham Dorrans won the ball in his own half, ran past a couple of defenders and then chipped Federici from miles out, with the keeper back peddling.
Just six minutes later Aleksandar Susnjar put the home side back ahead, once again scoring from a corner, before the madness that ensued at the other end.
However Federici's redemption triple save wasn't enough, just three minutes after the goalmouth scramble the Wanderers scored from their own corner.
The Australian goalkeeper was all too familiar with the man scoring against him, as fellow former Reading player Simon Cox headed home from Keanu Baccus unreal scorpion kick assist.

Speaking after the match about Dorrans goal, Sydney manager Carl Robinson said, "I'd take a little tap-in, to be honest. We've missed too many, but a wonderful goal by Dozza.
"We identified Adam's out quite a bit. He's like an outfield player when they have the ball. It's a highlight-reel goal and I think it'll be shown for years to come, and rightly so."
If more games are like that in the A-League we might have to keep a keener eye on them!
