Comoros Goalkeeper Becomes A Comedian In The Field As He Excites Soccer Fans.

Comoros national team made another history yesterday in their knock-out match in the ongoing African Cup of Nations. Comoros goalkeeper got much attention from the cameras and the fans. He was more of a comedian than a goalkeeper at the post.

Comoros team was hit by Covid-19 and all their three goalkeepers were ruled out because of the corona. They had to field Alhadhur who is a defender. Even their head coach was not available due to the outbreak. In most instances, he forgot he was a goalkeeper and could clear the ball inside his box with a header instead of using his hands. He was also noticed playing like a defender trying to tackle strikers inside his box area.

They were disadvantaged when their captain was red-carded only five minutes into the game. They fell behind after Ekambi and Aboubakar scored two goals. The 10 men Comoros showed they didn't reach this far by luck. They even scored a goal. The game ended 2-1 in favor of Cameroon who will face Gambia on Sunday in the quarter-finals.
