Don’t ever tell Boubacar Barry what it means to go all out. You know nothing about it. The Lokeren goalkeeper gave a new meaning to the phrase “laying it all on the line” on Sunday toward the beginning of a match against Club Brugge.
As you can see from the video above that 101 Great Goals passed along, Barry dove to try to stop a shot in the fifth minute when he collided with the post and was knocked out cold. According to Belgian news site Knack.be, he suffered a concussion but was later released from the hospital following the horrifying injury. His team went on to lose 2-1.
When we think about goalie as being a dangerous position, we’re usually thinking about a person trying to stand in the way of a scorching shot. Unfortunately, Barry reminded us that blocking shots isn’t the only occupational hazard associated with tending the net.
