Argentina coach Alejandro Sabella almost kills himself falling backwards (GIF)

Argentina got an early 1-0 lead after a goal from Gonzalo Higuaín. In the second half Higuaín nearly had another goal at Belgium captain Vincent Kompany’s expense. On a brilliant run in around the 55th minute, Higuaín put the ball through Kompany’s legs to come in on keeper Thibaut Courtois all alone. 

Higuaín beat Courtois with a hard strike, Courtois going low and Higuaín going high, but Higuaín just went too high and it sailed over the cross-bar.


That would’ve been a nice insurance goal and given Argentina a comfortable 2-0 lead. Argentina coach Alejandro Sabella couldn’t believe Higuaín missed and did this stiff as a board fall backwards.

He tried to abort and nearly did it too late, but he was able to catch himself before falling to the ground.
