Who’d be a goalkeeper, eh? Not many of us really. They don’t know what it’s like to score a goal or bamboozle a defender leaving him flat on his arse. Still though, when a goalkeeper does produce anything out of the ordinary it’s a great sight. Well, that’s exactly what happened in Australia recently.
Spirit FC were losing 3-0 to the Macarthur Rams and down to ten men only to battle on eventually pulling it back to 3-2. With just a minute left on the clock, Spirit FC were awarded a corner, sending their goalkeeper in the opposition box as a last minute gamble. Well, it paid off. He managed to rise above the Rams defence and do something most goalkeepers can only dream of – score the equaliser.
Spirit FC certainly lived up to their name, didn’t they?
