Wow! Polish keeper saves penalty in Azerbaijan, sent off for an offensive celebration

We are indebted to Piotr for sending this in – what a clip!

On Sunday in the Azerbaijan top flight, second placed Qabala took on Rəvan – we have no idea why the “e” is upside down but hey…

The encounter ended 0-0 but with 16 minutes to go Qabala won a penalty.

Polish goalkeeper Lukasz Sapela flung himself to his left and pulled off a brilliant stop.

Cue some crazy celebrations and a rude gesture…

Seconds later referee Elvin Äsgärov pulled out the red card.

Harsh, no?!

UPDATE: This was Lukasz Sapela’s second penalty save in the match.
