Most Americans cite a lack of excitement as their primary reason for not watching soccer, but I’m willing to bet they’d tune in regularly if they knew they’d be treated to events like one that transpired in England this week.

A presumably bored fan devoted his attention to constructing a paper airplane out of a noisemaker provided at the beginning of the Peru and England match.

After turning the paper into an aerodynamic flying machine, he launched the airplane toward the field from the upper deck of Wembley Stadium, and the result was spectacular.

The glider managed to reach the field and strike Peruvian defender Hansell Riojas in the side of the head, eliciting a well-deserved roar from the crowd. I don’t normally endorse throwing foreign objects onto the field, but I can’t say I didn’t enjoy this immensely.
