Goalie likely out for season after hitting post

The Belgian league goalkeeper who was briefly knocked out when
he crashed head-first into a goalpost will likely miss the rest of
the season.

Lokeren goalkeeper Barry Boubacar Copa was back home on Tuesday
after spending two days in hospital to see if there was any damage
to his neck and skull following his accident on Sunday.

Copa was reaching for a shot in a playoff game against FC Brugge
when he smashed into the goalpost, was briefly unconscious, and
carried off.

Lokeren spokesman Romain Van Schoor said on Tuesday it `’does
not expect him to play in any of the remaining games of the
playoffs,” which end on May 19.
