A bizarre incident closed out the Ligat ha’Al match between Hapoel Tel Aviv and Bnei Yehuda on Saturday night in Israel.
Having taken the lead thanks to a Ben Luz cracker after 13 minutes, Bnei Yehuda pulled back level through an Assi Baldout penalty. Hapoel then regained the lead with 20 minutes remaining when theirÂ goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama converted the second spot-kick of the day.
The fact that keeper Enyeama got on the scoresheet at all is a story worth noting. But the Nigerian custodian rewrote the headlines with a crazy assault in the very last seconds of the match which gave the referee little option but to send the shot-stopper off.
With the clock ticking down, Bnei Yehuda launched a final attack with the ball eventually ending up in Enyeama’s hands. Visiting striker Kobi Moyal then got in the keeper’s grill spewing verbals at the keeper as the frustration of defeat was clearly setting in.
But rather than being the bigger man Enyeama rose to the bait.
Lifting the ball above his head with both hands, Enyeama proceeded to hurl the ball straight at Moyal’s head with the object full-on crashing into it’s target from just a yard away. Madness!
