Dirty Tackle - World Soccer

Nature and electricity can be cruel beasts. One goalkeeper found this out the hilarious way in a Copa Mato Grosso semifinal match between Brazilian lower-division sides Operario and Sinop. Between the rain and the poor lighting, the Sinop keeper really didn't have it as easy as he seemed to think when Operario launched a free kick into the sky from distance. So, he only gave a half-hearted jump to the side of the goal as he seemed to assume the ball flew a few miles over his head. Instead, it glided just under the crossbar and landed in the back of the net.

From now on, he will surely wear a miner's helmet and those glasses with windshield wipers whenever he plays.
