Excited World Cup fan injures father in mishap

Kuala Lumpur: One fan’s excitement over the Ghana-Serbia World Cup match nearly cost his father an ear.

Malaysian news agency Bernama reports that 17-year-old Mohamad Rizal kicked a ball in frustration as he watched the Sunday match on TV, shattering a window.

It says glass pieces hit his father, Rosli Mat Noor, who was sitting next to the window, piercing his right ear.

Neighbors took Rosli, 43, to a nearby hospital where he received three stitches. Hospital staff in the northern Kelantan state could not immediately confirm the report Tuesday.

Ghana beat Serbia 1-0 in the Group D match. Mohamad Rizal was supporting Serbia and his misplaced kick was apparently in frustration when the Serbs conceded the goal.
