Assistant referee Asante Kotoko Bibiani Gold Stars Ghana Premier League
The official got so caught up in the action that he forgot about where he should be on the pitch

Asante Kotoko’s counterattack against Bibiani Goal Stars in the Ghana Premier League proved to be too entertaining for the assistant referee, who became so engrossed in the game, he ended up closer to the penalty area than the touchline. 

As Asante Kotoko scored their second of five goals against Bibiani Gold Stars, the assistant referee resembled more of a full-back than a match official, as looked like he was making a decent overlapping run. 

The role of a referee's assistant can often be a lonely one, being a rather invisible figure until you make an unpopular decision, so perhaps we can’t blame him for accidentally getting his moment in the limelight.
