DTotD: Lokeren goalkeeper knocks himself out on goalpost while attempting save

Dirty Tackle

Lokeren's visit to Club Brugge in the Belgian Pro League on Sunday was barely five minutes old when goalkeeper Boubacar Barry dived to save a shot from Colombian striker Carlos Bacca and hit his head on the goalpost. The Ivorian was out cold for a couple of minutes but was stirring when paramedics stretchered him from the field.

According to Belgian news site Knack.be, Barry suffered a concussion but was later discharged from hospital. He was replaced between the sticks by his Serbian understudy Jugoslav Lazic, who was unable to stop Club Brugge emerging as 2-1 victors.

This has been the Dirty Tackle of the Day: a chronicling of unfortunate events.
