In the report, it’s just the latest in a string of bizarre injuries among international goalkeepers:
- Spain’s Santiago Canizares missed this year’s World Cup after dropping a bottle of aftershave on his foot and damaging a tendon.
- Arsenal goalkeeper David Seaman hurt himself while he reached for his TV remote control and needed surgery.
- Wigan’s Dave Beasant missed matches after dropping a jar of mayonnaise on his toe.
- Liverpool keeper Michael Stensgaard dislocated his shoulder in 1995, trying to catch an ironing board that had slipped from his grasp.
