Watch hapless striker's shot hit posts four times without scoring

March 14, 2013|By Chuck Schilken

In pinball, this would have been worth mega points.

But, alas, some poor soccer player got absolutely nothing for an amazing shot that hit three different parts of the post a total of four times before being cleared by opposing defenders.

Nothing, that is, except quite a few Web hits, as everyone wants to see the video of this incredible turn of events.

Unfortunately, no one seems to even know the guy's name, just that he's a striker for a team called Egeas Plomariou in a match against another team called Papanikolis on the Greek island of Lesvos.

And let's not forget the lucky goalie, another anonymous fellow who does his best to follow the bouncing ball.

Check them out in the video above.
