VIDEO: Defender suffers comical penalty fate in Turkish second division matchPublished January 27, 2017
A second-tier goalkeeper in the Turkish league was the subject of a huge slice of misfortune in a recent match.
The as-yet unnamed stopper produced a smart save from a penalty, only to see his celebrations cut short by a comical passage of play.
After catching the ball, the goalkeeper was mobbed by a nearby defender, who proceeded to knock it out of his hands and into the net despite a last-ditch attempt to prevent the ball from crossing the line.
After waving away protestations from the home side and their supporters, a goal was given by the referee, with the defender credited with the final touch in the remarkable turn-around in fortunes.
Boos then rung out from the crowd, with a fellow defender seen criticising his teammates in a video that his swiftly gone viral online.
Disappointment was etched on the face of the unlucky keeper, who will no doubt think twice before celebrating his next penalty save in such a manner.
