Ex-Barca defender Dani Alves plays as goalkeeper for PSG - FCNaija

Ligue 1 By: Linus Onyeze | 07/02/2018

Dani Alves had a short spell in goal for PSG as they progressed to the quarterfinals of the Coupe de France on Tuesday.

PSG, defending champions of the competition, had no problems dispatching Sochaux 4-1, but not without goalkeeper Kevin Trapp being sent off in the last minute of injury time for committing a cynical foul on the edge of the penalty area.

At that point, the French champions had used their three substitutes, so after a few moments of deliberation the gloves were handed to a startled-looking Alves, who has forged a stellar career over the past decade as one of the world's best right backs.

However, he would not write any folklore in the goalkeeping department as his career in that department lasted a mere 10 seconds as Sochaux's free kick hit the wall and the referee then blew the final whistle.
