We’ve seen it so many times. A defender trying to protect his goal is rendered helpless when the ball hits off him at speed and cruelly embarks toward the back of the net.
It almost happened to Cruzeiro defender Egidio in their recent 1-1 draw against Palmeiras.
A Palmeiras striker hits the post and Egidio, chasing the ball he must presume is goal-bound, cannot get out of the way as he almost inadvertently nets a rebound. It took two attempts but he miraculously cleared the ball off the line to save his face from being covered with egg.
