Ten minutes into Malaga’s La Liga match with Sevilla on Saturday, home midfielder Fernando tried his luck with an ambitious shot from just inside his opponent’s half. Fernando’s effort skied the bar, and visiting keeper Palop playfully watched the ball sail into the crowd as he began swinging on his crossbar.
Then the comedy fail.
Poor Palop appeared to get a little over excited in his swing, managing to get his boots caught in the net. Unable to free himself the keeper lost his grip on the bar, and came unceremoniously crashing back down to earth by falling flat on his face.
Andres Palop’s FAIL can be seen here.
