A freak goal happened recently during a match as a goalkeeper celebrated a dramatic penalty shootout miss – only for the ball to bounce back into the net off the crossbar. This happened during a football game between Bangkok Sports Club and Satri Angthong which entered into a penalty shootout after normal time ended 2-2 on Saturday afternoon.
The cup game was in a crucial stage and tied at 19-19 when the last man – the goalkeeper – stepped up to take a penalty kick for Bangkok Sports. The penalty taker hit the crossbar which sent the opposition goalkeeper running away and jumping in celebration.
But the ball flew into the air and when it landed the backspin caused it to slowly bounce back into an empty goal as keeper frantically ran back to try to save it.
Emotions quickly changed and it was the goalkeeper who threw the ball down in anger while the scorer celebrated his freak goal.
According to reports, Satri Angthong then missed their next shot to send Bangkok Sports through to the final to be played later next month.
