A player for Brazilian side Bangu has been handed a six-match ban for illegally entering the pitch to make a goal-line clearance. Celsinho was on the sideline receiving treatment, but when his goalkeeper turned the ball over to the opposing team, he sprang into action.

Without permission, Celsinho ran back onto the field and stopped what was a certain goal, but in the process, netted himself a red card, and now the six-match ban.

While Celsinho’s instinctive play salvaged a point for his team — the opposing team was awarded an indirect free kick that they were unable to convert, and the match ended in a 2-2 draw — now he’ll be sitting out a long time before making his next clearance. Would he make that sacrifice again?
