He’s got pie on his face! Bombers star Kyle Langford hits Collingwood fan with instant karma after footy tragically gave it to him absolutely for a shot on target on Anzac Day
Footy’s hottest rivalry resumed on Anzac Day and Essendon star Kyle Langford was more than eager to take cold revenge after a hilarious interaction with a Collingwood fan.
Some 90,000 fans flocked to the MCG on Tuesday to watch Brad Scott’s high-flying bombers take on Craig McRae’s rampant Magpies, with the two rivals sitting in the AFL’s top four before the bounce.
And during a first half that swung back and forth, a Pies fan tried to give his side a marginal advantage by getting into the head of Essendon striker Langford as he prepared for a shot on goal.
The punter gestured to return the ball to Langford and waited for the right moment – just as the attacker was close enough to grab the ball and throw it to the turf.
But that did little to deter the 26-year-old, who popped a right-footed shot through the posts – and he didn’t let the attempted provocation go unpunished, immediately turning to the fan in the stands and pointing at him.
But the stunned Pies supporter went home happy after a fourth-quarter surge saw Collingwood take a 13-point win from the Bombers and stunned Scott’s side.
More to follow.
