Weighorst misses a penalty on purpose. In 2003 Denmark and Iran played a match in Hong Kong. At the end of the 1st half someone in the audience whistled so a player from Iran (and many other players) thought it was half time and he picked up the ball in the penalty area. The referee gave Denmark a penalty. Morten Olsen the coach of Denmark instructed Morten Weighorst to miss the penalty. Weighorst went to talk to the goal keeper who wanted to leave the stadium in protest and made him come back to the goal. Weighorst then shot the ball several meters outside of the goal. Later FIFA nominated Weighorst and the team leaders for the FIFA fair play award.
