JAKARTA: A supporter of Indonesia's beleaguered national side was so frustrated by their lacklustre performance against Oman that he run on to the opposing box and had a shot on goal.
The fan, Hendry Mulyadi, 25, later apologised although many online postings cheered his antics.
"I apologise to the football fans across Indonesia for what I've done," Hendry was quoted as telling Kompas.com after the match on Wednesday which Oman won 2-1.
He picked up the ball deep in Oman's half late in the game and showed a neat turn of pace to take it into the box but the goalkeeper blocked his effort.
A policeman, who had visibly struggled to keep up with the bare-footed fan, eventually caught up, put him in a headlock and dragged him away.
