Yishun Stadium played host to a special footballing moment when Syafiq Sazali took a penalty in a Singapore FA Cup match on Sunday (Oct 9).

The Yishun Sentek Mariners man scored the fifth goal against Kaki Bukit Sports Club with a rasping shot into the top corner - while executing an acrobatic mid-air somersault at the same time.
