Bolivian National Team goalie Daniel Vaca was playing a league match this past weekend when he was attacked by a fan with firecrackers. 


During the very end of the match, someone ran down close to the pitch and threw a firecracker at Strongest goalkeeper Daniel Vaca … who covered his face and immediately fell to the ground. 

Several players and even the ref rushed over to check on him. It doesn’t appear Vaca was injured in the attack though he was taken to a nearby hospital for further examination. 

Cops quickly responded and hunted for the suspect. However, there are conflicting reports about if the suspect was arrested. 

Watch below:  

Officials ended up calling the game early due to the insane fireworks show, but luckily for the goalie his team ended up winning the match in a 2-1 victory. 

Silver lining.
