WATCH: Matic kicks turf & wins penalty which Mitrovic skies over the bar!

What has just happened?!

There's no Premier League or Championship action this weekend due to the international break but there's been no shortage of drama. The UEFA Nations League is the main focus and in the early kick-off there's been plenty of entertainment. Serbia welcomed rivals Montenegro to the Stadion Rajko Mitic for a crunch clash, with the winners securing qualification through to League A. They made an electric start to the game which saw them fire themselves into an early 2 goal lead through Adem Ljajic and Fulham's Aleksandar Mitrovic - but the main talking point of the match doesn't surround the goals.

In the first half Manchester United man Nemanja Matic broke through in the Montenegro box and when he tried to get a shot away, he appeared to kick a combination of the turf and his own boot - which resulted in him falling over. It was a pretty comical fall but somehow the referee saw it as a PENALTY, to the amazement of pretty much everyone in the stadium!

Mitrovic stepped up to take the spot kick knowing that scoring it would pretty much secure their passage through to the next round, so there was a fair bit of pressure on him. He tried to get one over the keeper by doing a sly paneka but it didn't go to plan, with the ball floating over the bar! He looked devastated and it rounded off a comical series of events which you wouldn't expect to see at the highest level of football!
