South Africa’s Bernard Parker secures point for Iraq with bizarre clearance
Striker deflects goal-bound effort
It is a sad day for Off The Post. Uncle Bernard has brought shame on the Parker family with this shocking miss/clearance against Iraq yesterday.
In the closing moments of the opening match of the Confederations Cup, Parker managed to block a certain goal from Kagisho Dikgacoi by diverting the header away from the net with his left knee. We suspect he was trying to poach the winner for himself.
The match ended 0-0 despite South Africa being the much stronger side.
