Sebastian Larsson Scores Free-Kick After Östers Goalkeeper ‘Blinded’ From Smoke Caused By AIK Fans

Östers 'keeper Tobias Andersson had a tough time trying to keep out Sebastian Larsson's free-kick thanks to the smoke caused by AIK fans.

Larsson opened the scoring for his side with the free-kick in the Svenska Cupen quarter-final clash, but AIK supporters played their part in covering the 25-year-old Swedish 'keeper's net with smoke.

One fan can be spotted in the crowd holding a flair, which makes it difficult to see Andersson in net until his attempted diving save.

Check it out below.

Dragan Kapčević equalised for Östers in the first half, but then the 33-year-old forward would put his side ahead after he scored from the spot kick in the second half.

However, Daniel Sundgren would send the match into extra-time after he scored a penalty.

Chinedu Obasi's extra-time brace sealed a 4-2 win for AIK and booked their spot in the semi-finals of the Svenska Cupen.

What did you make of Larsson's free-kick?
