Embarrassing Goalkeeper Error Leads To Goal [VIDEO]
Whoops! Check out this funny mishap by a goalkeeper.
Sometimes we lose sight of the simplest things; like preventing your opponent from scoring at point-blank range. Real Sociedad goalkeeper Enaut Zubikarai lost sight of Mallorca player Gonzalo Castro. While the goalkeeper's back was turned, Castro snuck up from behind and stole the ball from Zubikarai. (By the way, "Zubikarai" is an impressive name. Based on principle, I might use it for a middle name of one of my future children.)
Give props to Castro. This is a great goal. Finding ways to take advantage of a mistake by your opponent is one of the greatest attributes an athlete can have. On the other hand, unforced errors (like Zubikarai's blunder) will shorten an athlete's career.
