Time for a little game of What Was The Chinese Goalkeeper Thinking? again. The initial keeping from Qingdao Zhongneng goalie Li Shuai is a little dodgy, but Paul Robinson gets away with palming the ball to opposition strikers most weeks so we can’t be too harsh there. He then gets a bit of luck when the ball bounces off the crossbar, so why does he head the ball into his own net instead of catching it? Answers on an e-postcard please.
