Fair play trumps goalkeeper flub
[VIDEO PICK: Off the Post] One of the biggest goalkeeper bloopers you'll ever see is followed by an extraordinary gesture of fair play in Italy's Serie D.
It was a meeting between two teams in relegation danger. After a Perginese player went down injured, a Dro player kicked the ball out of bounds. As per tradition, Fersina Perginese returned
the ball after the throw-in, but the Dro keeper managed to let the innocuous pass slip between his legs.
But Fersina's players didn't feel right about scoring that way, and allowed Dro an
unimpeded path to goal on the kickoff.
The game ended, 3-3.
