Scott Sterling is a name you will not forget after watching this, a goalkeeper with nerves (and a face) of steel, destined to go into the soccer hall of fame for the amazing performance he put up in a penalty shoot-out as the match, between Yale Bulldogs and the North Carolina Tar Heels, goes into overdrive.
The high drama and excitement of a soccer shoot-out is taken to hilarious conclusions in this sketch from comedy show Studio C. It's a perfect spoof of not just the dramatics from the players and the goalkeepers, but also the commentators over-the-top reactions to everything.
As the tension builds, brave Scott Sterling makes an epic save--with his face--resulting in him looking like he's done ten round with Tyson.
But it doesn't stop there, again and again the opposing team seeks to cannonball the ball into the back of the net, but Scott (and his face) is there to stop that happening. It's not a pretty sight, but it sure is fun to watch.
Poor Scott (and his pulped face) perseveres onwards and the shootout reaches the most epic of epic conclusions. If only all soccer shootouts could be like this.
