The last goalkeeper to score in the Jupiler Pro League was William Dutoit. He equalized for Sint-Truiden at Lokeren in November 2015. Yesterday afternoon it was Bodart’s turn. After the match, he still beamed in front of the Eleven Sports microphone.
“I never thought I would score in my football career. I am very happy that we do score a point, because just before that there is luckily offside in the phase where I miss the ball. If a goal was scored there, it was on my hood. “
“One point is another good result, because we played with one man less”, Bodart concluded. After all, Standard lost Shamir with red on the stroke of half time.
This was also unique for trainer Philippe Montanier. “A goal from the keeper in the 96th minute, I had not yet experienced that in my career, neither as a player nor as a coach. We can be very satisfied with this miraculous point, after having spent the entire second half with ten. We gave the maximum with ten to eleven. “
