Yeah, it happened on Sunday and yeah we’ve latched on to it about as fast as Per Merstesacker latches on to a moderately threatening through ball, but this goalkeeping howler from the USA v Germany is still hilarious.
The goalkeeper is the high-rated Marc-Andre ter Stegen. He’s not that highly rated that he’s ahead of Manuel Neuer in the German goalkeeping pecking order, but he’s still considered pretty good. With Bayern completing the final leg of their treble with a win in the German Cup on Saturday, ter Stegen got a rare chance to impress which let slide past him like a tame passback from a team-mate.
I’ve kind of ruined the ending there, but it’s still highly amusing.
