The ultimate soccer fan
« on: April 03, 2012, 10:11:48 AM »
Here's another wacky video from a Brazilian soccer match, this time from a regional division. The game was between Guarani (at home) and Sergipe (away) and the visitors were leading 1-0 with just a few minutes remaining. The home side had a corner kick and they decided to send everybody upfront, including the goalkeeper.

But disaster struck, the away team got the ball and launched the counter attack, everything was set for an empty-netter...

... but a quick fan jumped from the stands and took the goalie's position and even managed to  clear the ball off the line! :) The crowd was, obviously, roaring!

And now comes the best part: he did manage to save the goal! The referee couldn't have given Sergipe a goal, because the ball didn't go in! In such situations the rules say that play is resumed with a neutral ball in the midfield circle, or at least that's what I know.

Sergipe did win the game 1-0 though.

That was a cool move from a very dedicated fan. I was hoping you'd say that they won the game.

Haha, that would have been quite extraordinary indeed. Unfortunately they didn't have enough time left in the game to turn things around.

What an incredible piece of action that is.  I wonder what the English Premier league would have done about it if it happened on the pitch. 

Great footage.

It surely would have been a huge scandal in the Premier League. Then again, I'm quite sure that the security people would have stopped an invading fan before he could take his place between the sticks.

LOL I believe that's every fan's dream. It was really fun to watch and he looked so proud.
