Wow! Polish keeper saves penalty in Azerbaijan, sent off for an offensive celebration
- February 25, 2014
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.
UPDATE: This was Lukasz Sapela’s second penalty save in the match.
