If you've ever played 5-a-side with that guy who can't resist a deliberate handball that ends up pissing off both opponents and teammates alike, you'll know how the Inter Milan players felt as they lost to Sampdoria on Monday night.
Marcelo Brozovic was the guilty party in this instance, as with the score at 1-1 in the 86th minute, he momentarily forgot the rules of football, and presumably where he was at the time.
As a free-kick flew past his head, he decided to stick a hand out and block it, thus giving the opponents a much better chance at getting the game winning goal... Which they took.
Being in a wall allows you to protect your face with your arm, it does not entitle you to become a second goalkeeper.
In plain sight of the referee too. Madness. Absolute madness.
The spot-kick was dispatched by Fabio Quagliarella, and Inter could not find an equaliser in the remaining few minutes. Brozovic, despite having an impressive season at the San Siro, will have to explain to his teammates what the hell he was thinking.
The loss means that Inter remain in 6th and out of the European places, three points adrift of Atalanta in 5th, and nine points away from Napoli in the 3rd and final Champions League spot.
