VIDEO: Player does roly-poly to regain footing during Ukrainian second tier match

Thinking on his feet - or, to be precise, off them.


Metalist 1925 player Dima Kryskiv performed a lightning-quick roly-poly to regain his footing during a 0-0 draw against Polissya Zhytomyr.

After stumbling on the turf having just dispossessed an opponent during the match in the Persha Liga, Ukraine’s second tier, he had to really think on his feet.

His solution was an ingenious one – a rapid forward roll saw him spring back upright and continue running with the ball, although he was then tackled himself.

With three wins and three draws from their opening six matches of the season, Metalist currently lie 2nd in the table.

Everton fans might remember them as Metalist Kharkiv from when they met in the Uefa Cup during the 2007-08 campaign.
