Italian team displays ultimate show of sportsmanship

March 17th, 2014

It’s common practice for teams to return the ball back to their opponent after an injury stops the run of play. Usually, it’s a pretty straight-forward process.

But in this Italian Serie D match between Fersina Perginese and Dro Calcio, things didn’t go according to plan:

Our only complaint is that the goalkeeper who made the disastrous blunder didn’t take the ball up the other end to score. Luckily for him, the match ended in a 3-3 draw and he wasn’t responsible for a loss — though the fans may not be so forgiving.
