goalkeeper Sui Weijie has been fined and is facing a suspension after a terrible mistake cost his team victory.

During a game which relegation threatened Lifan needed to win, the 32-year-old custodian conceded a goal while he was sipping water in a match against Liaoning Whowin.

His mistake cost them the full points as their opponents scored an equaliser seven minutes from final whistle after Ding Haifeng horridly took the free-kick, dribbling past defenders and slotted the ball into an empty net.

According to Xinhua, Sui has already been punished with a 8,060 USD fine and has apologised following the confrontation from Lifan’s supporters.

“I made a terrible mistake in Sunday’s game and let go a full three points,” he lamented on the incident. “I won’t repeat the same mistake and will never lose concentration.”
