Notts County defender Alan Sheehan took his anger out on goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski during a pre-season friendly against Galatasaray last night.

The Magpies took a shock second-half lead against the Turkish giants, with Enoch Showumni’s low cross was turned into his own net by Dany Nounkeu.

The home side sensed a famous friendly victory, but Burak Yilmaz took advantage of a Sheehan mistake to smash home from 12-yards.

Understandably, the 26-year-old was far from happy with the role he played in the equaliser, and attempted to smash the ball into the heavens as it bounced back out of the net.

However, the former Leeds left-back wasn’t banking on Bialkowski heading the ball whilst on his knees, and subsequently connected with the Polish stopper flush in the face.

It didn’t get any better in the remaining 30 minutes, as Wesley Sneijder scored a stoppage-time winner for the Super Lig outfit.

It was Sheehan’s facial on Bialkowski which made the game worthwhile though, and you can watch the brilliant video below…
