Watch Germany keeper Neuer save himself after hilarious gaffe

The Rio Report

At Rio Report we knew Germany keeper Manuel Neuer was one of the very best in the world, but we didn't know he had this in his locker as well.

Against Ghana on Saturday night, in the heat of World Cup battle, Neuer temporarily forgot how to throw the ball.

As he looked to distribute it left to Benedikt Hoewedes, Neuer accidentally held onto the ball to send it looping up into the air.

But thankfully it dropped nicely for him in any case and he nonchalantly volleyed it up pitch.

He meant it all along, honest.
