Disgruntled footballers have been known to blame the state of the pitch for a bad result.
But if these players in the Kazakhstani league were to put in a complaint it would probably be justified – after all taking a corner kick on a submerged football pitch is tricky work.
In a comical video posted on YouTube a footballer is seen being instructed by the referee to take the corner in what resembles the middle of a lake.

Water joke: The taker could be forgiven for not beating the first man with this corner
When he tries to throw it
to an area where the ball isn't at risk of floating away, he is ordered by the referee to replace it in the corner.
His team-mate comes over and the pair then improvise to try to get the ball in the box.
The corner taker, wearing No 10, kicks the ball up in the air and it is then caught by No 22 and kicked on to the pitch.

Handiwork: The player wearing a number 10 shirt, then engages in some impressive moves – he kicks the ball up in the air and it is then caught by his team mate and kicked on to the pitch
But the water reprieve does not last long – the ball is then kicked straight back into the water.
In the background a clean-up crew can be seen pumping water out of the water-logged pitch.
Some users who watched the video commented the game should have been called off as the referee was not unable to see the pitch markings.
