GIF: Nigeria goalkeeper forgets to do his job, concedes stunning howler

by Aidan Elder | October 13, 2013

Oh look, there’s a ball coming in my direction.
Somebody should probably do something about that.
Yep – it’s getting close now, the goalie better …
Wait – gloves, different colour jersey – the goalie’s me.


We’re not entirely sure that’s what was going through Vincent Enyeama’s head as the ball come in his direction during the Nigeria’s World Cup qualifier with Ethiopia earlier, but judging by his commendable one-man of musical statues, it clearly wasn’t too far off.

The Nigerian goalie inexplicably failed to react until it was too late to a rather tame and mishit cross from Behailu Assefa, catching the ball when it was clearly over the line, leading to one of the strangest goals you’re ever likely to see.

It ended up relatively ok for him as two goals from Emmanuele Emenike gave the visitors a 2-1 comeback win that puts them in a strong position ahead of the return leg next month.

Sorry about that person’s head in the middle of the picture. You go all the way to Addis Ababa for a World Cup playoff game and you get some idiot with a massive hat sitting in front you. Typical.
