Dnipro goalkeeper scores from own half only to have goal disallowed
For one beautiful moment, Dnipro stopper Jan Lastuvka thought he'd finally sealed his lifelong membership to the illustrious goal scoring goalkeeper's club when he belted one in from his own half against Zorya over the weekend.
Sadly, Lastuvka's joy was to prove short-lived, with the referee almost immediately chalking off the Dnipro keeper's massive 75-yard effort after spotting an off-the-ball infringement while the ball was in flight.
Even if the officials hadn't blown for a foul, it was an indirect free kick which didn't touch anyone, so wouldn't have counted anyway.
As it happens, Dnipro went on to win 2-1 regardless -- not that it came as much consolation to their poor, cruelly snubbed goalkeeper.
