7th-tier keeper blazes penalty into stands and breaks stadium light

Written by | News, Sports, Trending

Tony Breeden, an English non-league keeper broke stadium lights after his shocking spot kick blazed into the stands.

Nuneaton were playing Stratford in the Southern League Central Division – the seventh tier of English football.

Just before half-time, the home side were awarded a penalty and up Breeden stepped up to take the spot-kick.

His team-mates were happy to give the goalie the responsibility from 12-yards, I’m sure they probably wish they never had.

Breeden blasted the kick, sending it into the stands and smashing stadium lights.

Fans online were left in hysterics after Twitter user Joe Vernon shared the hilarious footage.

One said: “This is why goal keepers should stay in goal ,?.”

Another said: “I’m in tears.”

One added: ” That is what we call the penalty within a penalty. (Penalty for breaking a light).”

Another added: “Quality lower league football.”

Fortunately for Breeden his team-mate Joel Kettle bailed him out netting the opening goal.

Nuneaton were actually awarded another penalty with five minutes to go – but they decided to turn to Callum Powell instead of their keeper.

Powell made no mistake from the spot, with the game ending 2-0.
