Goalie knocked out cold after slamming his head into post [Video]

goalie knocked unconscious

Ivory Coast native Boubacar Barry is the goalie for Lokeren of the Belgian Pro League. He attempted to make a save on a shot taken by Club Brugge’s Carlos Bacca.

The shot wasn’t even close, but Barry didn’t know that at the time. He went for the fully outstretched dive to try to stop the ball, but went down after slamming his face into the goalpost instead.

He suffered a concussion and is now out of the hospital. He may have nightmares from this, but if not, that’s cool too — we’ll have enough bad dreams for him. Yikes, this is a scary hit.
