Off the post and into Shaun Wright-Phillips’ face

There's a very popular YouTube video that shows one kid smashing a shot off the post that then hits his friend playing goalkeeper square in the face. Well, back in 2009, when Shaun Wright-Phillips was still with Man City, they recreated that Internet classic at the expense of the diminutive winger's face.

Wright-Phillips was messing around in goal during a training session when one of his teammates took a shot from outside the box that careened off the post and into SWP's unsuspecting noggin. Everyone laughed and then a gentle breeze blew him away.
