Substitute goalkeeper steps on pitch to save goal

In Argentino B, the fourth tier of Argentinean football, teams are required to field ten outfield players and a goalkeeper. Much like teams in the rest of the world. Huracan Las Heras, however, temporarily flouted this convention during their visit to rivals Club Atletico Union over the weekend.

With the Huracan keeper beaten during an Atletico attack, substitute shot stopper Fernando Espinoza decided to step on the pitch and lend a hand, obstructing what would have been a certain goal. Like a kid who has just stuffed dog poop into the tail pipe of his principal's car, Espinoza turns around and hastily retreats as if nothing had happened.

Incredibly, Atletico were only given a corner kick for the incident, and the back-up goalie got away with just a yellow card. Espinoza later said his reaction was "instinct", which must be an Argentinean word for "cheating".
