MOSCOW (AFP) – It’s the ultimate goal of every team to win a game and the same can be said of football.
It’s the goal for many, the ultimate test of every player.
And to have a bad goal is a great shame, but one that comes with a price.
Kiel’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a hat-trick to make it 2-0 to the German side and leave them with a 2-2 draw at the Stadion Kiel.
It was a dramatic finale but it was all too much for Stadions defenders, who saw their keeper made a red card for a late tackle.
It looked as if the game was over in the 89th minute but a penalty was awarded and the Stads won it with a second goal.
It could have been much worse but for the brave actions of Ibrahimovic who headed a free-kick past keeper Hugo Lloris and into the top corner of the net.
And the win was Stadio Siena’s first win over a German side since the start of the 2014/15 season.
“We played well in the first half and I thought we were the better team,” Stadios coach Carlo Cappellini told the club’s official website.
“But after half an hour it became clear we didn’t play the same way as in the previous games.
The goal was good, but the reaction of our goalkeeper made it difficult to win the game.”
Ibrahimovic scored twice in the second half and Stadia lost two players to injury.
Diego Salcedo and Ricardo Salcedu both missed out for the visitors.
But it was Kiel that seemed to have the edge after the break and it was an absolute display of class from Ibrahimovic as he headed home his first goal of the season.
Ibra scored a second for the hosts before Lloras made his first save.
But Kiel pulled one back when it looked like Llorres had levelled in the 80th minute when he nodded home a cross from Ibrahimov’s pass.
Stadion Sienas took the lead after a corner was cleared for the ball to cross the face of the goal.
But Llorris kept the ball out of the box to prevent a second from coming and a shot from the spot was deflected into the path of Ibrahimov who was able to tap in the equaliser.
The result moves Stadias top of the Bundesliga table.
Stadiabellos have now won their last two league matches and are in 10th place.
