Chapter 503 Super Goalkeeper
After the cue from Duan Bailian’s whistling, the second half of the Soccer match had officially begun.
Very quickly, Qin Haodong received a goal kick.
He held the ball in his hand. He had been busy studying during junior high school. After college, he had spent all his spare time working. This was the first time he had played Soccer.
He placed the ball on the ground, then he made the kick. It was a powerful kick; however, he couldn’t control his direction as the ball directly flew out of the sideline like a cannonball.
A lot of onlookers who had gathered around the stadium all burst out laughing when they saw that kick.
The players on Fan Lihai’s team were laughing their heads off. They could tell that Qin Haodong didn’t know how to play Soccer from that kick alone. No wonder he had not tried to play in the first half.
Qin Haodong did not care. With the strength of his Spirit, he could thoroughly master playing football after two to three kicks. When that time arrived, he wanted to see if they could still laugh.
The match continued. Very quickly, Fan Lihai’s side had possession of the ball. As the captain of the school’s Soccer team, his skills were indeed outstanding. His dribbling soon broke through the defense from the Chinese medicine practitioners’ class and was directly facing Qin Haodong.
Fan Lihai moved forward and got close to Qin Haodong. His left leg gently made a feint.
As he expected, the young man in front of him had an outstanding physique, but he didn’t have much experience in playing Soccer and was immediately deceived by him.
When Qin Haodong jumped to the left, Fan Lihai gently raised his right foot and kicked; the ball made a beautiful curve towards the other side of the goal.
In his view, this kick was a kill shot. After he made his move, he didn’t even look and began to run back to celebrate his goal.
However, before he had run far, he suddenly noticed that everyone’s positions were not right. He saw Zhi Fubao running towards him with the ball, while no one on his team was celebrating. On the contrary, they went into a tense defensive state.
“What’s going on? What is this? Why are we kicking the ball already when the referee hasn’t even blown the whistle yet?”
What he didn’t know was that, even though Qin Haodong had been deceived by the feint just then, the ball had not gone in.
Qin Haodong had made a move that no one had expected. He had turned his body mid-air and caught the ball.
The onlookers were so surprised that they couldn’t speak. Even the world’s top goalkeeper couldn’t do this, yet this student in front of them had done it.
Only when Zhi Fubao had brought the ball past the midfield line did these people slowly return to their senses. Then, they cheered.
Especially Nalan Wushuang, Li Meiyu and the other two female classmates. Even though there were only four of them, they led countless males in their cheers for Qin Haodong’s wonderful performance. Their shouts were earth-shattering.
After Fan Lihai realized what had happened, he quickly directed people to form a defense. However, it was too late.
Zhi Fubao and Tian Boguang made a clever coordination. In the end, Tian Boguang passed the ball to Fang Zhaoping at the front, who kicked the ball and scored. 3:1. The Chinese medicine practitioners’ class had finally scored a goal.
There was a thunderous applause around the field.
Qin Haodong’s team performance had indeed been amazing. From Qin Haodong’s magical save, to the ingenious coordination of the three students, it showed both strength and unity among the team members.
Fan Lihai’s expression turned so dark that he looked frightening. He had not expected for his sure-kill goal to be saved by Qin Haodong. It seemed that he had been too careless.
Duan Bailian whistled as the ball was once again kicked out from the center line. The players on Fan Lihai’s side were indeed worthy of being members of the school team. They had not messed up their position because of the goal just then, and still methodically launched an attack.
After a few minutes, Fan Lihai once again received the ball in front of the goal and found a great opportunity.
He saw that Qin Haodong’s position was to the left, so he kicked the ball directly to the upper right corner of the goal. The kick was beautiful. It made a beautiful arc and headed straight to the upper corner.
“I want to see if you can still save the ball this time!”
Seeing the ball head straight towards the corner of the goal, Fan Lihai decided that it was definitely going in. He turned around again and began to run to celebrate. This time, he copied the celebration style of a Chinese football player, mimicking the posture of shooting an arrow with a bow.
However, he soon noticed that the surrounding onlookers had not clapped and cheered. On the contrary, they were looking at him with a dumbfounded expression.
“What’s going on? Did it not go in again?”
When he turned around, he saw that the ball was in Qin Haodong’s hands. Immediately after, a thunderous applause and cheers sounded around the field. However, it had nothing to do with Fan Lihai. The applause and cheers were for Qin Haodong’s amazing save.
“Am I seeing things?!”
Fan Lihai had played Soccer for many years; he had seen many excellent goalkeepers and wonderful saves. However, his shot just then was going directly to the corner. No matter how excellent the goalkeeper was, it would be impossible to save the ball. Furthermore, Qin Haodong was only about 1.80 meters tall.
But in reality, the ball had been saved. This could be called a miracle.
If they continued to play this way, how could the game go on? Right at that time, Fan Lihai’s team was leading by two goals. No matter how outstanding the goalkeeper was, as long as their side did not let any goals in, they could still win the match.
While he was thinking, Qin Haodong had already kicked the ball out.
No one took it to heart when the goalkeeper kicked the ball. Also, judging from Qin Haodong’s kick, his footwork was not good, either.
However, Qin Haodong had once again shocked everyone. His kick from the net was so powerful that it flew straight towards his opponent’s net.
“What the hell. This guy was aiming to score a goal.”
The opponent’s goalkeeper stood very far from the net. He ran back like crazy when he finally reacted, but it was too late. No matter how fast he was, it was impossible to be faster than the ball in the air.
With a poof sound, the ball went into the net.
Duan Bailian whistled and announced the goal. The score on the field became 3:2.
Whether it was Qin Haodong’s save or his super long shot, it was all world-class. The students who watched on the sidelines went crazy and cheered at the top of their lungs.
“Qin Haodong, you are amazing. I love you. I love you so much…”
“Qin Haodong, I want to marry you. I want to be the mother of your child…”
“Qing Haodong, do it again. Score another goal and I will have sex with you…”
Fan Lihai punched the ground hard, once he saw the situation being reversed. His two kill shots were saved and instead, he had lost two balls on his side, leaving his team with only one point in the lead.
However, he was still the captain of the Soccer team after all; he had experienced many battles. Knowing that he couldn’t go on like this, he immediately summoned his own players to stabilize themselves and rearrange their tactics. They had to play steadily and firmly defend first, or at least ensure that they would not lose the ball again.
The match started once again. Fan Lihai’s side slowly stabilized their formation, and relied on technique to regain their advantage on the field. Not only did they have a solid defense, they also continued to shoot towards their opponents’ goal.
However, with Qin Haodong, a supreme power realm practitioner defending the goal, how could a ball go in? No matter how fast and tricky the shots were, they were all saved by Qin Haodong.
During this period of time, the competition had simply become Qin Haodong’s individual performance. He continuously made wonderful saves, and received wave after wave of applause.
It was obviously the Chinese Medicine practitioners’ class that was being suppressed, yet their aura was very powerful. This was because they had a super goalkeeper, so they didn’t have to worry about their own goal.
Fan Lihai was about to go crazy after seeing Qin Haodong perform like an energizer battery. Not only had he become extremely depressed in this match, he also couldn’t find any opportunities to kick. After all, Qin Haodong was a goalkeeper, so Fan Lihai wasn’t able to run over and break his legs.
The end of the match was getting nearer and the Chinese Medicine practitioners’ class was still one goal behind at 2:3.
After such a long match, Qin Haodong had fully mastered the Soccer playing techniques.
After he caught a goal kick again, he suddenly kicked. The angle of this ball was high and fast, as it passed all the defenders on his opponent’s side.
The opposing goalkeeper immediately became nervous and quickly went to save the ball. However, he noticed that the ball was not kicked towards the goal, but instead headed towards the back of the goal.
This was not a shot, but a super long pass with an excellent landing point. Fang Zhaoping, who was originally in line with his opponent’s defender, quickly moved and took the ball easily. His beautiful position broke through the opponent’s defense and faced the goalkeeper directly.
As the goalkeeper was just getting ready to save the ball, he stood too far back and lost the chance to control the goal. Fang Zhaoping fiercely kicked with his foot. The ball slammed into the corner of the goal, and the score was now tied at 3:3.
“Long live Qin Haodong…”
“World class kick, super assist…”
“Nice work Qin Haodong. I love you. I love you so much…”
Although it was Fang Zhaoping who made the goal, almost everyone was cheering for Qin Haodong. Fang Zhaoping smiled without any jealousy in his heart.
Coordinating the pass was definitely more difficult than shooting the goal. That pass was amazing. He was able to directly shoot towards the goal as soon as the pass landed. No extra movements were required. Anyone could have scored a goal.
“Damn it, this bastard!”
Fan Lihai was furious, but he had no choice. He was unable to break through Qin Haodong’s goal and he couldn’t find the opportunity to break his legs. Fan Lihai had worked for nothing this time around.
The time was getting closer and closer to the end. When there was only one minute left to end of the game, both sides were still tied at 3:3.
At this moment, there was danger in front of the goal of the Chinese Medicine practitioners’ class. It was pressed tightly by Fan Lihai and his players. Tian Boguang desperately snatched a ball from the opponent’s front foot and passed it to Qin Haodong.
From everyone’s point of view, Qin Haodong would definitely pick up the ball and make use of the rules to manage the remaining time reasonably. After all, his opponents were part of the Medical College’s school team. For Qin Haodong’s team, a draw meant they had won this game.
But unexpectedly, Qin Haodong did not take the ball. Instead, he gave up his own goal and rushed towards the opponent’s goal with the ball.
Stupefied! Everyone was stupefied!
Was this a fight to the death or suicide? At that moment, the goalkeeper hastily attacked. As long as the opponents took the ball, the Chinese Medicine practitioners class was bound to lose!
“Quickly go back, guarding the goal is more important!”
“Quickly kick the ball out. It’s too dangerous!”
Many people shouted one after another, but Qin Haodong ignored them and continued to run with the ball all the way to the opponent’s side of the field.
The players on the opposing side returned to their senses one after another and went forward to steal the ball. However, Qin Haodong ingeniously broke through their blockade.
Fan Lihai gritted his teeth. Compared to the match, his mission was more important.
Thinking of this, he went over and arrived behind Qin Haodong. His feet were like flying shovels as they fiercely headed towards Qin Haodong’s ankle. This move was obviously aimed towards the person, not the ball. If ordinary people were hit by him, some bones would surely break, ending with disabilities for the rest of their lives.
Seeing this, everyone was stunned on the spot. No one had expected for Fan Lihai to use such a shameless trick.
Duan Bailian had a lot of experience as a referee; he immediately blew the whistle to stop the match, once he saw that action taking place.
However, even if the match was stopped, Fan Lihai’s movement could not. His feet were still heading fiercely towards Qin Haodong. When their feet met, the sound of bones cracking rang throughout the field.
