In soccer, when one team is dominating in attack, it's not uncommon to see that team have almost all of its players up forward, and the defending team all staying on their half. This is especially common when, say, a team is 1-0 down in the dying moments of a critical game and is desperately trying to get an equalizer. My question is, have all the players on the pitch, including the goalkeepers, ever been on the same half of the field at the same time. (Still include instances where some of the players have been sent off. Players swarming the referee to protest a decision, or penalty shootouts, do not count.) If there are such instances, when/where was it, how long did it last, and what was the context of the game?
The context would be a match where losing by two goals is no worse than losing by one goal. Knockout matches like the FA Cup, or league matches towards the end of the season where a win or a draw (or goal difference) is vital for survival/promotion.
The goalkeeper Jimmy Glass scoring for Carlisle to keep them in the league. I think I have correctly counted 22 players in the same half.
Peter Schmeichel came up for the first corner (equalizing goal) in the 1999 Champions League final as well. Losing 2-0 would have been no worse than losing 1-0 so the keeper and the team had nothing to lose.
I would go as far as to say that any time the keeper comes up for a corner you will have 22 players in the same half.
