PK shenanigans in the Rose City



Timbers games at home are always entertaining. This was something different. One PK, retaken twice.


because FIFA rules state:

The defending goalkeeper:
must remain on his goal line, facing the kicker, between the goalposts until the ball has been kicked


and

if the goalkeeper infringes the Laws of the Game:
the referee allows the kick to be taken
if the ball enters the goal, a goal is awarded
if the ball does not enter the goal, the kick is retaken


so DC's goalie goes for a slight stroll, a rule not always called is called...and fun is had.
