558 minutes without a goal!

I am sure the players and coaches of the Magdeburg team in Germany appreciated this extra help from their fans.  The team had failed to score for five consecutive games, but "rather than boo their own players as is the modern way, these fans decided to lend a helping hand."

The fans gathered in the stands behind the goal and held up a banner reading: "Don't worry, chaps, we will show you where the goal is!"  And their efforts seemed to work. American forward Chris Wright finally found the back of the net to equalise for Magdeburg and end their 558-minute goal drought.

The team still lost the match 2-1, unfortunately.
