For those who have watched the Oscar-winning Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, you know there are alternate dimensions out there with different Spider-Heroes. Until Sunday, the Spider-Man of our dimension had yet to reveal themself.
We now know there is a Spider-Man in this dimension and he plays in the Polish Ekstraklasa. Frantisek Plach is a 29-year-old Slovakian goalkeeper who plays for Piast Gliwice in Poland’s top league.
When writing a match report, there’s nothing I dread more than spending the entirety of it praising a goalkeeper. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve got nothing but respect for the position, but the spectator in me wants to see the fulfilling act of a goal or four. There’s only so much joy to be found in a keeper clawing out an attempt before pulling off a miracle kick save to keep things at 0-0.
