Stuttgart Attacker Booked For Taking Too Long To Score
Stuttgart attacker Silas Wamangituka was booked for unsporting conduct on Sunday after refusing to convert his open goal opportunity against Werder Bremen in a timely fashion.
The 21-year-old had already given Stuttgart the lead in the 30th-minute from the spot, and he was gifted an opportunity to put the game on ice after a horrible mix-up between Bremen defender Ömer Toprak and keeper Jiří Pavlenka.
Wamangituka gathered possession with the clock reading 90:08, but the ball didn’t strike the back of the net until 90:17 despite the attacker facing an empty goal.

The referee booked the Congolese forward — whose Wikipedia now says “he is not a very respectful player” because people are anti-fun — and booked Werder's Davie Selke for getting in his face about it.
