IFK Gothenburg caught moving the goalposts… literally (video)

In one of the most bizarre scenes of the season to date, last night’s Swedish Allasvenskan match between IFK Gothenburg and Orebro was disrupted in the first half after the referee discovered that the IFK goalposts had literally been moved on the pitch.

According to reports from Sweden, IFK keeper Kim Christensen was caught adjusting his posts about four inches on each side prior to kick-off, with referee Stefan Johannesson only spotting the shifted posts 20 minutes into the match.

It is unclear whether there will be any disciplinary action handed out to keeper Christensen for what can only be described as a blatant act of cheating.

The match, unsurprisingly, ended goalless.
