Belgian goalkeeper Sammy Bossut ended up with egg on his face after a
hilarious blunder in a Pro League clash at the weekend.

The 25-year-old Zulte-Waregem keeper was feeling pretty pleased with himself
after confidently claiming a corner curled in by one of Lokeren's players.

But his pride quickly turned to shame as his attempt at a huge throw up the
middle backfired spectacularly.

Bossut failed to let go of the ball at the right time, and by hanging on
that bit too long he ended up catapulting it back past his legs - and straight
into the path of opposition striker Benjamin De Ceulaer.

With the rest of the team already moving upfield, De Ceulaer was free to finish into the empty net to put Lokeren 2-0 up inside the first 10

Bossut's team-mates fought back, managing to notch a goal, so the blunder ultimately proved decisive with Zulte losing 2-1.
