Video of the week: Uruguayan Goalkeeper has to Borrow Shirt From Fan

What sounds like a story from your local Sunday League team has actually happened last week in Uruguay’s Premier Division: While warming up for the game against Progreso, Penarol keeper Kevin Dawson realised that somehow there was no match short for him. Either himself or someone from the staff must have forgotten to pack it for the away game.

Luckily, a supporter in the stands was wearing a replica goalkeeper-shirt and went on borrowing his kit to the goalkeeper, receiving a Penarol jacket from the bench in return.

After the referee allowed this  unusual shirt swap, the game was set to go. And apparently the fan’s shirt proved to be a lucky charm for Dawson and Penarol, as they were able to keep a clean sheet and ed up winning the game 1:0.

Penarol is still well positioned in the fight for the national crown, being ranked 2nd after 14 rounds.

In order to maintain this position after the clash with Progreso, they really had to count on their „12th man“ this time.

Wednesday Shortlist #10 – Football’s World XI: North & South America Edition

Hello boys and girls! It’s Wednesday – the middle of a long, exhausting week. In order to bring in some relief from work-place boredom or tiredness during school lessons, here’s this week’s Wednesday-Shortlist for you to browse through and hopefully have a laugh at. Bad puns, useless knowledge and proper banter; Wednesday Shortlists have it all. This week’s topic: A slightly different American all-star selection.

Fun fact: If they actually were countries, only two of the following players would have qualified for the World Cup. Unfortunately there was no player named USA ─ but hey, it wouldn’t have made a difference, would it?

Captain: Dieter America (Currently without club)

Bolívia (Currently without club)

Alan Brazil (Bathgate Thistle CFC, Scotland)

Antonio Cañadas  (CF Lorca Deportiva, Spain)

Vinicius Colombiano (Retired)

Alejandro Cuba  (FC Stade-Lausanne-Ouchy, Switzerland)

Fabrice Peru  (GSI Pontivy, France)
