Soccer player told during game he left headlights on, scores minutes later
Rochdale midfielder Callum Camps was a bit distracted late in the first half of Tuesday’s game, but he didn’t let it affect him.
The match against Gillingham in England’s third-tier league was scoreless when the public address announcer informed the crowd that someone had left their headlights on. That someone was Camps, as he told BBC Radio after the game.
Unfazed by concerns he might need a jump after the game, Camps put his team ahead just minutes later with a pretty nifty goal.
Unfortunately, Rochdale couldn’t hang on to the lead and the match ended in a 1–1 draw. But at least Camps’s car battery didn’t die.
Oh, and if Rochdale sounds familiar, it’s because it is the club that uses confiscated marijuana lights to grow grass on its field.
