Goalkeeper Kicked In Face by Own Teammate

Imagine if it had been a competitive match.

A friendly between Notts County and Galatasaray saw the Magpies concede a goal from the Turks' Burak Yilmaz which levelled up the score at 1-1. As the ball bounced out of the net, defender Alan Sheehan went to kick the ball away in frustration, but instead connected straight in the face of County 'keeper Bartosz Bialkowski.

He was carried off on a stretcher after a seven-minute stoppage, but all is well now, with County boss Chris Kiwomya stating that "he's fine".

He'd better hope for a clean sheet on his return to the side.
