Video: Peter Kovacs scores a goal, puts himself out of contention for Fair Play award
Giving a new meaning to the phrase no pain, no gain
Odd Grenland booked their place in the semi-finals of the Norwegian Cup after beating SK Brann 5-1 at home over the weekend, but it was their second goal which has got their opponents hot under the collar.
Hungarian striker Peter Kovacs grabbed the goal in controversial circumstances. He collected the ball after stricken Brann keeper Håkon Opdal injured his knee attempting to make a clearance. Rounding the keeper and slotting home was not a difficult task, but Kovacs immediately felt the wrath of Opdal’s team-mates.
Brann were incensed that Kovacs played on despite the keeper’s injury. The striker points out that he did nothing wrong and played to the laws of the game.
OTP is with Kovacs on this one. It was a matter for his own conscience and he felt it was right to play on. Opdal is still fit enough to make a lunge at Kovacs as he goes past him!
