VIDEO: Goalkeeper hit in the face by shot in children’s training game

Unfortunate youngster dived too early.


A parent captured the moment when a young goalkeeper saved a certain goal with his face in a training session.

The clip is part of a series of videos filmed of the Instagram user’s son playing football in all kinds of places.


In the match, organised between two sides on a mini pitch, one of the children in yellow dribbles purposefully towards goal before shooting.

The goalkeeper dives early but is, slightly belatedly, hit directly in the face by the ball.

The rebound bounces clear while the goalkeeper clutches his head following the great save.
