Soccer Goalkeeper Knocked Out Cold By Ball (VIDEO)

There's a reason most people shy away from playing goalie in soccer. Best case scenario you stand around and don't have to do any work. Worst case scenario, this happens.

Video has emerged of a freak play during an indoor soccer game in which a goalkeeper is shown attempting to clear a ball, only to have it deflect right into his face causing him hit the floor, apparently knocked out.

Slow-motion replay of the exchange revealed that, yup, that had to sting.
