Found June 16, 2012 on Holdout Sports:

Central African Republic goalkeeper Geoffrey Lembet threw some punches at the goalposts with his bare hands during the second half of Friday's Africa Cup of Nations qualifying soccer match against Egypt.

Lembet was receiving treatment on the field when a referee asked him to leave the field so medical staff to continue to look at him, which apparently set him off.

Central African Republic was down 2-1 at the time, but rallied to score two goals for a 3-2 upset victory over Egypt. So maybe Lembet's goalpost punching rallied the team, which is great as long as he didn't destroy his hands in the process.

H/T Dirty Tackle.
