So when your goalie gets a red card and there are no more subs to be made, one of your outfield players steps in to play goalie. We've seen Rio Ferdinand do it. Who are the others and who are the best at it?
Tuncay Sanli had a run there in the European Cup last year in the classic Turkey v Czech Rep. match.
Rustu the legendary Turkish GK was actually a forward until his late teens when he was 'forced' to play in goal one day and excelled so much at it that he was forced into a permanent switch. I think he was 17, and seeing him make clearances with his feet and take a penalty one day I can't understand how he ever played as a forward because he's woeful with his feet.
Daniel Pancu and Bobo have played in goal for Besiktas, Pancu in a classic match that they won 4-3 away to Fenerbahçe.
Not to give Dagoods an orgasm but I think it was Pineda who stepped in goal for Udinese against Inter in the 97/98 season when the keeper got sent off for a handball just outside the area. Ronaldo took the free-kick and scored the clincher for Inter. Djorkaeff scored from a backward header earlier. So it isn't the best example of a successful run in goal but since this memory is the closest Dagoods will get to getting laid, why not?
