Social Zone: Outfield goalkeeper stars for Comoros, while Mario Balotelli makes Italy return

With an outfield player in goal and down to ten men within seven minutes, Comoros can be proud of their AFCON exit, while Mario Balotelli makes a shock return.

A free-kick worthy of winning any game... especially one where you're down to 10 men with an outfield player in goal.
Yes, you did read that correctly. Comoros managed to reach the AFCON round of 16, but had both their goalkeepers test positive for Covid-19, meaning a full-back had to play in goal. If they weren't underdogs already, they certainly were now.
But Comoros' Chaker Alhadhur did himself proud, even if there were some moments he slightly forgot that he was goalkeeping...

Meanwhile,ย Mario Balotelli (who is still only 31) has been recalled to the Italian national team. 2022 truly is full of surprises.

Jose Mourinhoย - a natural crowd pleaseer.
