Crazy goalkeeping error... by marinastrigga

Oh dear, this really was one of the worst, most inexplicable goalkeeping howlers ever, or... well, let's just leave it at that.

The goalkeeper for FK Celik Niksic, quite bizarrely, decided to hurdle over a shot from a player for Slovenian side Koper as his side slumped to a 5-0 defeat.

The blunder was so spectacular and unusual that it prompted local media to report the incident as 'suspicious' with the keeper subsequently accused of fixing the match.

To make matters worse for the shot-jumper, fans of the Montenegro outfit gathered outside the club's offices to protest about it.

Regardless of the outrage and fury over the goal which has landed the keeper in controversy, it was a convincing victory for Koper.

Who says that the Europa League lacks quality?
