Alberto Brignoli who ??
I had no clue who this player was until a few days ago. Well, now I know who he is!
To make a long story short, he is a keeper for Benevento (never heard of this Serie A club) and they are playing against seven-time European Champs AC Milan.
They are down 2-1, and with the game just about over, Benevento end up being awarded a free kick. Brignoli gets the signal from the coach to go up for the free kick…who knows…maybe he scores a goal. This hardly ever happens, but it’s worth the try.
Guess what? He scored and what a goal it was! See the brilliant goal here.
In the end, all Brignoli’s goal clinched was a point. And yet, it felt like they had won the World Cup and so much more. It was Benevento’s first ever tie in Serie A. Before this game, the newly promoted team had lost all 14 Serie A games played.
What a cool story made even better by a keeper scoring one hell of a goal. #keeperunion
