IFK Gothenburg goalkeeper Kim Christensen
got caught red-handed, or red-footed, by television cameras before a match against Orebro. Cameras show Christensen using his feet to push
bottom of each post slightly inwards.
About 20 minutes into the match, referee Stefan Johannesson
spotted that the posts had been moved a few centimeters inward, and
pushed them back into the right place. The Swedish soccer federation is investigating the incident.
"I have never heard anything like this before," said Swedish FA's
disciplinary chief Kheneth Tallinger
. "It's unique." Christensen, however, said that he used this tactic before several other games. IFK Gothenburg drew 0-0 with Orebro
and tops the standings on goal difference with just a few weeks of the season remaining.
