The verb "netted" is indistinguishable from "nutted" in a glance.
They don't mean the same thing, apparently.

Happened last week on my 30+ team.  My forward pressured the goalie, goalie went to clear the zone, chipped it right into my forwards jewels, bounced into the net.   Once we stopped laughing, we helped him limp off the field.

Can't say I'm surprised it happened to Almunia

Nope, still not enough to make me give a rat's fart about soccer.

It's a good thing they have video so Wood can remember what happened.

Ouch!

The video won't play for me. It's almost like there's an ocean between my computer and the server. Weird.

Ball is kicked back to goalie by one of his own players (this means the goalie cannot pick it up).  Guy from the other side rushes the goalie (pretty standard boilerplate action, basically to make the goalie do something with the ball instead of standing there).  When the goalie kicks the ball, instead of sending it downfield, he plows it right into the face of the other guy.  Ball rebounds into the net.

Wood nutted the ball and netted it at the same time, though.

Woohoo, now if the All Whites do this all the time they might get a chance to make it to the World Cup again!

Go All Whites!

/Don't worry I love the All Blacks too.

You sure this one hasn't already been submitted subby?  I think the actual goal was in February.

I actually did this same thing in a six-a-side game a few months ago.  Ricocheted off the forwards shin guard into the net.  Was so pissed at myself.

No subby, this is the weirdest goal of the year by far...

IMHO the weird part was the call, and that it was allowed to stand.

Well, considering that this is a New Zealand news source, that date actually means November 3rd, 2013.

Where's the video?  I don't see it on that page
