Streaker Costs Finnish Soccer Team Goal, Gets Tackled by Angry Players (Video)

Usually, soccer teams embrace their fans’ role of the “12th Man” as their supportive base. But one Finnish team seemed to experience a bit of a home-field disadvantage on Sunday.

During a game between HJK and ROPS, a streaker ran onto the field in nothing but black spandex as the home team, HJK, was on the verge of putting one in the back of the net. Due to the interference, the goal was waved off, resulting in some displeased players on the pitch.

Since the players couldn’t do anything to make the goal count, they decided to take security matters into their own hands. Let’s just say if you’re going to try and make a run for it on the field, make sure it will result in some chuckles from the crowd, not ill-willed curses.

Check out the streaker’s attempted run to glory in the video below.
