FAIL – Brazilian defender pulls down the goalposts

The Youtube title on the video in Portuguese starts with “Bizarro”, and that’s just about a perfect description.

Defender Fabio Ferreira should be hugely congratulated for getting back and managing to clear the ball off the line after his goalkeeper had made a save, but the player also ruined the game for everybody.

That’s because after making the clearance, Ferreira fell back into the net. Rather than the net being taut and the player staying on his feet, it instead pulled down the frame of the goal, which almost collapsed on top of the defender.

The best thing is the video is the clear panic from the goalkeeper, who rushes back to try and save his team mate.
