Video: Swedish keeper sent off after 44 seconds for baffling hand ball

Posted by Chris Wright

In the Swedish second division, Orgryte goalkeeper Peter Abrahamsson managed to leave his side a man down for 89 minutes, 16 seconds of their game Monday against Hammarby after inexplicably charging out of his goalmouth and swatting a bouncing ball away from the opposing striker despite clearly being several yards out of his box shortly after kickoff.


Not surprisingly, 10-man Orgryte lost 3-0, leaving them next to last in the Superettan table.
