The ‘horrendous’ foul that’s gone viral and left fans stunned

Footage of a ‘horrendous’ foul that’s gone viral once again this week has left fans stunned and left rubbing their eyes in disbelief.

The 31 second clip, re-uploaded from 2019, shows a goalkeeper coming out of his box to make a “potentially career-ending” challenge on the opposition’s striker.

The incident came about during FC Carmarthen’s clash with West End United AFC, when onlookers can be heard reacting in shock before the West End keeper receives a red card and is immediately given his marching orders.

The video has been viewed more than a million times on social media, and that was over a year ago, now it’s back on Twitter and getting thousands of likes, retweets and 200,000 views and rising.


FC Carmarthen striker Josh Malinowski spoke about his luck at coming away with minor injuries after the challenge during the game with West End.

The University of Liverpool student, from Ferryside, said: “From a personal point of view I’m very disappointed at the challenge made on me, I have only recently come back to playing football as I suffered two years out with an ACL injury.

“As you can imagine a challenge like this has shook me and knocked my confidence. Luckily I came away from the incident with minor injuries from a challenge that could have resulted in serious injury if my leg had have been planted.

“I just hope this incident is dealt with properly and the correct punishment is given for such a horrendous tackle, in which could potentially have been career-ending.”

The incident was reported to the West Wales Football Association, the player added.

A statement from FC Carmarthen said: “With approximately 15 minutes left of play we were leading 2-1, when our striker Josh Malinowski was through on goal and the away team goalkeeper had decided to come out of his box and foul Josh to prevent him taking an opportunity to put us 3-1 in the lead.

“The goalkeeper was immediately sent off. Luckily for our club and Josh he only suffered minor lacerations, bruising and a ripped sock!

“However, this could have been a career-ending challenge had it caught his planting foot. The players, who were spoken to prior to kick off were told not to retaliate to any ongoings, and responded very well to this incident: a situation which could easily have resulted in a brawl.”

A spokesman for West End United AFC said: “We have taken action against the player as a club. We have zero tolerance on rash behaviour.

“This won’t go unnoticed as a club.”

Details of what action has been taken against the player have not been disclosed, while the spokesman added they intended to write a letter of apology to FC Carmarthen.

He added: “The player went to apologise afterwards. The opposition team didn’t want to speak to him.”
