Video: Swedish goalkeeper moves the goalposts
Some terribly crafty cheating from Scandinavia
The recent Swedish Allsvenskan tie between IFK Gothenburg and Orebro had to be halted after twenty minutes of play, when the referee discovered that IFK shot stopper Kim Christensen had moved the goalposts four inches closer on both sides before kick off.
It’s hard to know which is more ridiculous: the idea that Christensen thought he could get away with it in front of a stadium full of people and TV cameras, or the idea that the Swedish league uses goals that aren’t buried into the ground. Do they fall over when someone takes a hard enough shot at the post?
