Keeper head-butts penalty scorer before feigning injury

Published 1 Comments

At GMS we love a moment of complete madness as much as the next sports site, so there was with great glee when we came across Vitoria Setubal goalkeeper Pawel Kieszek’s complete blow out last weekend against Porto.

Vitoria will have been cursing their luck after being drawn against the reigning Primera Liga champions for the opening weekend, but they got off to an unimaginably good start and took the lead after only a quarter of an hour.

Porto are champions for a reason and it was always likely they would come back into the game, which is exactly what happened when they were awarded a penalty just after half time.

Josue despatched the penalty with aplomb and was keen to recover the ball after his celebration, which sparked the classic goalkeeper-holding-onto-the-ball scenario in the goal.

Josue was annoyed, pushed Kieszek and received a head-butt for his troubles; admittedly it wasn’t very hard but you can get away with something like that.

You can try though! Which is exactly what the Pole tried to do, going down holding his face as though he was the one who had been assaulted.

It was hilarious/disgraceful (delete where you feel applicable) playacting and the referee obviously saw right through it, handing out the deserved red card.

Lieszek’s attempts to wind up Porto players by hanging onto the ball led to him making their comeback easier, which they completed easily, winning 3-1 in the end.

Watch Pawel Kieszek’s moment of madness above.
