A Bosnian goalkeeper was stunned when he learned that his horrible never-ending headache was actually caused by the 9mm bullet lodged in his head.
The bullet is thought to have come from someone celebrating a local wedding by recklessly shooting bullets in the air blindly, according the Bleacher Report.
According to the report from the Sarajevo newspaper Dnevni Avaz, Dusko Krtalica, 51, started complaining about his head hurting while playing goalkeeper for his suburban team recently.
Here's the kicker: He played the entire 90-minute game and allowed just one goal.
Dirty Tackle's Ryan Bailey, who also reported the amazing story, writes Krtalica soon "complained of a stiff arm and had difficulty speaking. He was driven to a local hospital, where doctors were shocked to see that a 9mm bullet was clearly lodged in his skull."
Somehow, the player didn't immediately realize he had been shot in the head during the match. However, the report goes on to say that a 42-year-old local was later arrested and his pistol was confiscated. Police also reportedly found 12 more shells near the field where Krtalica and his team were playing.
"In an odd twist, the goalkeeper was both the luckiest and most unfortunate player on the pitch. While he did get hit in the head with a bullet, the report states that he made it through the operation just fine and is in stable condition," the Bleacher Report adds.
