Argentina v Belgium: Gonzalo Higuain effort knocks Alejandro Sabella off his feet
The Argentina coach was taken aback by the forward's superb strike - so much so that he ended up stumbling over on the touchline.
Gonzalo Higuain's stunning volley for Argentina left many viewers with their jaws firmly on the floor - but his coach Alejandro Sabella went one step further.
The Napoli striker unleashed a stunning strike onto the top of crossbar with Argentina leading 1-0 against Belgium, much to the agony of La Albiceleste fans who were desperate to get to the semi-finals.
But none more so than Sabella, who simply could not contain his emotions.
The 59-year-old was hoping his striker could put the chance away to give his side a two-goal cushion and, while most coaches would perhaps opt for a head-in-hands gesture, Sabella bizarrely gave the illusion that he was fainting.
Argentina did eventually progress to the semi-finals thanks to Higuain's superb volley.
Let's hope for Sabella's sake there's not a penalty shootout.
