Clean through on goal in an Argentinian lower league game, Bell Ville’s striker lofts the ball past San Martin’s goalkeeper and rightly assumes that he’s got himself on the scoresheet.

Unfortunately for the Belle Ville forward, San Martin’s substitute keeper (who was warming-up behind the goal) had spotted the danger early and ran onto the pitch to help his buddy out in his hour of need – with Belle Ville then unable to make the subsequent indirect free-kick count…

We like to imagine that, having been told to bugger off, the reserve keeper clicked his fingers, pointed at his No. 1 as he walked past and said “everybody gets ones” before moseying off into the sunset.
