Masseur in a goal - level 3

Masseur in a goal - level 3

18-09-2013 14:00

A masseur for a Brazilian football club has stunned players by running onto the pitch and blocking two goals.

After clearing the ball, he then turned and sprinted towards the dressing rooms, chased by furious Tupi players.

But his efforts were enough to keep the game tied at 2-2, sending Aparecidence through to the semi-finals of Brazil's fourth division.

Opponents Tupi are reportedly appealing to get the result overturned.

Difficult words: stun (surprise), clear (send the ball away from the area near one's goal), chase (follow), furious (very angry), reportedly (according to what some people say), appeal (request), overturn (cancel because it is not right).
