There was a bizarre moment in the Liga Premier Malaysia on Wednesday afternoon.

Kelantan FC and Perak FC went head-to-head for their clash at the Sultan Muhammed IV Stadium.

Kelentan went into the game first in the table after 11 games played, while Perak were second bottom.

But it was the away side that pulled off an unlikely victory.

It looked like the home side would extend their lead at the top of the table when they took the lead in the first minute through Jasmir Mehat.

But goals from Wan Zack Haikal and an own-goal saw Perak lead 2-1 after just 20 minutes.

In the 85th minute, Perak FC were still leading and looked as if they would pull off an unlikely victory.

That’s when one of their players decided to waste time in the most epic fashion.

After Perak were given a corner, their number 2, Sunday Afolabi, started taunting the opponent’s fans by dancing on the pitch.

Afolabi then dances in another player’s face in an attempt to wind him up.

After stepping on his opponent’s foot, the Perak FC man then starts rolling around the pitch in the most ridiculous play-acting you will see this year.

Kelentan’s players went over to him to check if he was alright, which he inevitably was, but the Perak FC player continued to act as if he was seriously injured.

Watch the moment below…

We’re not quite sure what we’ve just seen. What a bizarre 40 seconds.

The caption of the video reads that Afolabi went from Jesse Lingard, known for his dancing, to Neymar, who has a reputation for play-acting, in seconds.

The moment has gone viral with plenty of football fans sharing their thoughts.

“No ways he just did a full 360.”

“He should maybe pursue a career in dancing cause diving ain’t it,” @engineer_ndulka said.

@sin_prateek wrote: “Bro acting like someone cut off his leg.”

“He deserves two red cards.”

All of Perak FC’s time-wasting was worth it for them though as, after seven minutes of injury-time, the final whistle blew and confirmed their unlikely 2-1 victory.
