The unusual happened in Italy: a goalkeeper was ordered to be expelled for urinating in full play. It was at the Igea Virtus-Messina, a derby from Sicily, Italy, to count for the D-Series, group I, on Sunday.
The protagonist of the story is called Armando Prisco and the explanation for such a pressing need lies in the combination of two factors: the 21-year-old keeper drinks a lot of water (three liters a day) and was not prepared to enter suddenly – at the beginning of the second part.
“I drank water when we went into the stadium, before the warm-up, at the beach, at half-time and in the second half,” he told journalist Gianluca Di Marzio. I could not stand it. I was moving like crazy and when the game stopped for a substitution I tried to take advantage of it: I pretended that I was stretching behind a banner. No one noticed, except for the referee, “he said, not mea culpa.
“I apologized immediately and did not protest. I know that the judge has complied with the regulations [Act 12 for ‘offensive or crude gestures’], but I want to make it clear that I did nothing obscene. I knew there were a lot of kids in the stadium and I did everything to camouflage the situation, “he said, promising never to repeat the cute thing that earned him three games of punishment:” I’ll take it for a second time. I’m 21 years old and I’m not incontinent yet. ”
As a matter of curiosity: when Prisco was expelled Messina had already made three substitutions. A central inside and the game ended 0-0.
