During the recent World Cup I remembered seeing this futbol film while in France.

It was a physical comedy with the protagonist that seemed like a Jerry Lewis type. I saw it in a room off the lobby of a hotel in Nice, France when I was a kid.

He was the goalkeeper during a big game and shots were coming in on him and he just knocked them away like slow moving flies. He walked on top of the goal and did other outragious things. Very funny and the crowd I watched it with loved it too.

Definitely a French film and was in black and white.

I saw it around 1970 so it predates that.

Any ideas as to this film's name?

I vaguely remember a similar B&W film featuring the french comedic legend Fernandel. Perhaps a search of his filmography would help.
