Football Player tosses explosive On Field Full Footage

It happend at the AFC Champions League match between Iranian Sepahan and Saudi Arabia's Al-Ahli at the Foolad Shahr Stadium on Sep 20, 2012.

The quarterfinal first leg was temporarily interrupted when the referee ran to one of the sidelines to inspect debris thrown on the field by fans. As you can see from 1:05 in the video above, Sepahan midfielder Adel Kolahkaj picked up a small, black object and tossed it away from the pitch. Turns out that object was some kind of mini grenade or firecracker, which exploded upon landing, causing the referee and his assistant to run like they were Forrest Gump and the small explosion was a bunch of rock-throwing bullies.

Japan could host 2019 Women's World Cup

TOKYO (AP) -- FIFA president Sepp Blatter stated last Friday that Japan would be a ''good candidate'' to host the 2019 Women's World Cup even though the country will stage the Rugby World Cup the same year.

The 2019 Rugby World Cup will be played in Japan from Sept. 6 to Oct. 20. Blatter said the country could hold the women's tournament beforehand.
Blatter said ''Japan would be a good candidate or contender. They are a little bit afraid because they have the Rugby World Cup in the same year but the sports are totally different.''

Japan won the 2011 Women's World Cup in Germany. Canada will host the 2015 tournament.

Blatter is in Tokyo for Saturday's final of the women's under-20 World Cup between the United States and Germany.
