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.
