Liverpool Ladies allow 40-yard equalizer, score straight from next kickoff

New, comment

The natural reaction to conceding a 40-yard equalizer is to shoot straight from the kickoff and OH MY GOD IT WORKED.

The Liverpool Ladies goalkeeper got really drunk and came running out of her box, thinking she was Manuel Neuer, but she's not. The result was a giveaway, an open net and Birmingham equalizing on a 40-yard goal.

It was so cool for Birmingham that they had to celebrate with everyone on the team. Everyone. The goalkeeper included.

But if the goalkeeper was around midfield celebrating, she couldn't be in the goal too, so Liverpool took the kickoff, immediately shot into the open goal and went back in front.

AND THAT WAS EVEN COOLER THAN WHAT BIRMINGHAM DID.

The whole sequence is 12% soccer, 39% hilarious and 49% entertaining. The winner is us.
