Portuguese defender lobs his keeper

When you have fought back from 0-3 down to 2-3 against one of the biggest teams in Europe, what you don’t need is one of your defenders to restore the opposition’s two-goal cushion let alone do it with as much panache as Sporting Lisbon’s Marco Caneira did against Barcelona. You suspect his team-mates know he would have blazed it over the bar at the other end!
