Samuel Eto’o scored another goal capitalizing on a goalie error Wednesday in Chelsea’s Champions League game at Stamford Bridge against German club Schalke 04. This time the Cameroonian legend ran into the path of keeper Timo Hildebrand as he attempt to clear a ball at the top of his box. It deflected off Eto’o and into the net.
Somehow this goal — an actual real-life gimme — happened in the top club competition in the world. For some reason it reminds me of Krusty watching the Harlem Globetrotters — He’s spinning the ball on his finger!
Last month Eto’o scored an equally unique goal when he stole the ball from Cardiff City keeper David Marshall as he was bouncing it on the ground.
Memo to keepers across the world, stop gifting Samuel Eto’o goals.
