'Football is for the living': Unsporting and controversial goal as striker scores after goalkeeper collapses

Top-flight match in Peru sees goalkeeper collapse with heat exhaustion

César Vallejo striker Piero Alva scored a controversial goal after Club Unión Comercio's goalkeeper Juan Flores collapsed in a top-flight game in Peru.

The goalkeeper released the ball after reportedly suffering from heat exhaustion, only for the striker to challenge a clearance by Flores' teammate which ended up in the back of the net.

Alva did not apologise for his conduct though, instead defiantly claiming that 'football is for the living.'
