It’s not easy being a goalkeeper in the Caribbean! you’re either baking in the midday sun or dealing with hurricane-strength winds. Those adverse weather conditions can make simple things almost impossible.
In the video below you can watch a keeper in the Caribbean as he attempts a simple goal kick! It didn’t end well! The ball travels about 25 yards before the wind catches it and drives it right back at the stunned keeper. You’ve gotta feel sorry for this lad, it’s not often a keeper scores, especially in his own goal!
