The FA Cup match between Premier League sides Wolves and Liverpool saw some hilarious scenes take place as a brief powercut during the live game left the players, fans, and commentators confused.
Wolves winger Adama Traore was on the cusp of delivering a cross from the right flank when the lights went out.
By the time the power came back on, the ball had already been kicked out of the playing area. Lying on the ground, Traore couldn’t believe what had happened.

Amid mounting questions about Klopp’s own future at Anfield, the German claimed this week that he will not leave the club unless he is forced to and hinted at changes in his squad during the summer.
Hamstrung by injuries to a host of key players including Virgil van Dijk and Luis Diaz, Klopp made eight changes after the Brighton debacle, with only Cody Gakpo, Thiago Alcantara and Ibrahima Konate retaining their places.
Harvey Elliott’s brilliant long-range effort in the first half at Molineux secured a much-needed first victory for Liverpool in four games in all competitions.

Wolves had forced the replay with a 2-2 draw at Anfield, but Julen Lopetegui’s side were angered when they had a potential winning goal from Toti controversially ruled out for offside in the final seconds.
They were unable to take their chance to avenge that injustice despite a lively start that saw Adama Traore’s cross headed just wide by Raul Jimenez.
Eliott opened the scoring in breathtaking fashion in the 13th minute.
On Saturday, Liverpool will host Chelsea at Anfield before traveling to American Express Community Stadium to face Brighton in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
