Terrible Goalie Blunder

8 Dec

Is this the worst goalie blunder of the season? The competition is quite stiff but Sander Boschker of FC Twente staked his claim for that award last night in Enschede.

22 minutes into the match, center back Peter Wisgerho passed the ball back to his keeper for clearance. Maybe there was a sudden flash of lightning or a beautiful fan took her shirt off in the stands. Whatever it was, Boschker completely took his eye off the ball and kicked nothing by cold Dutch air. The ball continued its trajectory and nestled nicely into the side netting. Wisgerho unfortunately was credited with the own goal on the score sheet.

Boschker has since dug himself a nice big hole in his backyard and will hibernate there until the end of winter. Hopefully, when he wakes up in the spring, his horrific miss will be distant memory…

Or, he has to live with it for the rest of his life. My bet is on the latter.
