it did happen (but not to us)

September 27, 2010

Remember this?  If you’re too lazy to click on the link, it’s the post that talks about how Mou is training Sergio and Sami to be the back-up goalkeepers in the case that both Iker and his substitute are injured/expelled during a game.

This scenario actually happened yesterday in the second division, and to a former Real Madrid man!

Miguel Palanca, now a winger at Elche, had to put on the gloves and defend the goal after his goalkeeper got his expelled for a foul on an opposition player in the area.  A penalty was called on that play, and Elche, having made all three substitutions already, could only put Miguelito in the goal.  The penalty went in, with the game ending 2-2.

And Jordi tweeted about it, of course.  Like I said before, canteranos stay friends.

    Aaahhh that has to be like the worst thing ever, I really really hope it doesn’t happen to RM. I would probably cry (although not as much as, like, Iker and his subs!)

    I don’t think expulsion’s ever likely for Iker, considering he’s only ever been carded ONCE in his entire career, an (unfairly given, I felt) yellow in the Euro 2008 final for trying to calm down an argument on the pitch. But injury….

    LOL at the thought of Sergio or Sami in the goal though!

      No, Iker has been expelled before; it happened against Osasuna back in 2005. Luckily, Madrid hadn’t made all three substitutions when he got the red card, so they were able to bring in Diego López.
