Swede keeper gives new meaning to 'moving the goalposts'

There is a phrase in business jargon called 'moving the goalposts' and it's not used in really pleasant circumstances. But a goalkeeper in Sweden has given new meaning to this phrase.

Kim Christensen, who plays for IFK Gothenburg, was caught in camera kicking both posts to make the goal smaller in a game against Orebro.

Later, he admitted that it was not the first time he had reduced the size of the goal.
