    Comoros without any goalies for African cup match

    Due to injuries and the virus an outfield player is the goalie. Any kind of precedent for this?

    Sometimes when all subs are made and the goalie gets a red card you see outfield players play goalie. Everyone has played as a goalie at some point in their youth years.

    In-game it happens quite often. If GK gets red-carded and team has already used max 3 subs, Outfield player puts on the gloves.

    Can't recall it happening Pre-game. Has also happened in NHL (fwiw), where top 2 goalies are hurt and Emergency goalie (provided by league) comes in to play.

    I would think the bus is parked immediately. You can’t have a team firing away on a guy who’s not a real goalie

    It's an interesting test case. Logic would say Over. What is the value of a Goalie?

    I'm gonna say he's going to look like a Fish out of Water. Goal-keeper skill set is pretty unique:

    *Working with the defenders to control the Offsides Trap.
    *Playing the angles. Top goalies know exactly where they can't be beat.

    Surprise angle. I think Cameroon -2.5 looks great. Goalies also distribute the ball to get the offense going, Comoros is getting shut out today.

    Good Luck on the game. Interesting, if nothing else.

    The defense sucks anyways. They gave up 2 against Ghana after a red card. With a different team I would think this an overreaction but in this case could be warranted

    I played some Over 3.5. Fish out of water, imho. I'm a little worried about the 3-0 scoreline.

    They have three goalkeepers. One is injured and the two other are covid positive. An outfield player will need to go between the sticks

    Comoros match odds 60 currently at Orbit Exchange : )

    There's the goal. 1-0, Cam. Comoros already red-carded, down to 10 men.

    Comoros hanging pretty tough. 10 pts if anyone can point out Comoros on a World Map.

    2-1 final. Props to Comoros for hanging tough.

    Trin, think I'm a jinx. My picks have been terrible.

    Yes. At every NHL game, an emergency goalie is standing by in case he's needed and he's available to both teams. It's usually a local resident who played goalie in college, the minors, etc.

    Ya. Sometimes, you never know.

    Comoros actually scored a 30-yard free kick goal. Amazing.

    quite often my ass. What once every 10.000 games? And like trinity said for a few minutes.

    Off the dome I recall Turkey v Czech Republic Euro 2008 and once more in some 3rd division few years back which I was watching live, I was able to get a live bet in against the goalie handicapped team and won lol.
