Riled by a time-wasting opponent, one Uruguayan goalkeeper decided to go rogue over the weekend in order to speed up his adversary’s recovery from a phantom injury.
Plaza Colonia were trailing 1-0 at home to Rampla Juniors in the Primera Division and desperately chasing an equaliser when the visiting side began to attempt to whittle down the clock.
With a Rampla player sprawling around in faux agony, Plaza Colonia goalkeeper Kevin Dawson took umbrage, sprinted over to the sidelines and fetched a rather sarcastic stretcher onto the pitch for his injured opponent…

Ironically, Dawson was promptly booked for unsportsmanlike behaviour by the referee, though Plaza did go on to rescue a point by virtue of a dramatic 92nd-minute equaliser.
Maybe there is a little justice to be found in this harsh, unfeeling world after all.
