Stop The Madness: Soccer Player Shot While Trying To Score A Goal

Posted by uproxx on

Police say an Iraqi soccer player has been shot dead just as he was about to kick what could have been the tying goal in a weekend game south of Baghdad.

Police Maj. Muthanna Khalid says a striker from the Buhairat amateur team was facing only the goalie during a Sunday match in Hillah when a supporter of the rival Sinjar club shot him in the head in the final minute of play.

Back when the Bulls were killing the NBA I wondered what would happen if a psycho fan just came out and clotheslined Jordan before he could shoot a game winner. This is on another level, how crazy must you be to shoot someone over a damn game?
