Goalkeeper hits post head-first

BRUSSELS -- The goalkeeper who was knocked unconscious when he crashed head-first into a goalpost during a Belgian league game will likely miss the rest of the season.

Lokeren goalkeeper Barry Boubacar Copa was back home on Tuesday after spending two days in a hospital to see if there was any damage to his neck and skull following the incident on Sunday.

The team said he sustained a concussion.

Copa, the Ivory Coast's national team goalkeeper, was reaching for a shot in a playoff game against FC Brugge when he smashed into the post and was briefly knocked out.

Lokeren spokesman Romain Van Schoor said Tuesday the club "does not expect him to play in any of the remaining games of the playoffs," which end on May 19.
