A selection of 'keeper calamities that the men between the sticks are keen to forget
In the forever-pointless third-placed playoff against the hosts at Italia 90, Peter Shilton gave us all a good laugh by gifting Roberto Baggio a goal.
Baby-faced Enckleman showed admirable restraint when confronted by an idiotic Blues fan on the pitch, but that still doesn’t spare him the ignominy after letting in the softest of soft goals in the Brum derby.
“He’s behind you!” Sadly Shay Given didn’t have his hearing aid in at Highfield Road, allowing Dion Dublin to sneak in and make the Newcastle ‘keeper look a right wally.
Taibi only played a handful of games for United, and this is why. The Red Devils learnt from this mistake and bought some bald French guy…
No goalkeeping blunders list would be complete without at least one from Fabien Barthez’s repertoire. Here we’re treated to two, in the same game.
Higuita was known for his goalkeeping histrionics, but he got his comeuppance against Cameroon at the 1990 World Cup, as the sprightly Roger Milla nipped in to make the Columbian look a right clown.
Lee Carsley’s pile-driver was too hot to handle for Pepe Reina, so hot that after catching the ball he immediately had to toss it up for Andy Johnson to butt home.
Spurs were denied a rare win at Old Trafford after assistant Rob Lewis failed to spot that Roy Carroll had spilled Pedro Mendes’ halfway line effort a good 10-yards into the goal. Even Arsene Wenger saw it!
Arguably the easiest goal this forward will ever score after this moment of tomfoolery from the man between the sticks.
This Energie Cottbus stopper had clearly been swotting up on fellow net-minder Jens Lehmann’s guide to looking a twit, opting to use his head to deal with a looping strike.
