This goalie had a really mental confusion, or perhaps he just did this because there was no other choice…


This unique action happened during the Belgian League in a game between Beerschot and Dragons where after a long ball was sent, the goalkeeper went out of the circle and kicked the ball.

The ref decided to call the penalty corner and issue a yellow card!

Now let’s watch the video, it seems that the ref made the right call!
