Goalkeeping is a tough job. Really, keepers are content to have their name not mentioned at all during a game broadcast, because if they are called out it’s usually for one of two things. Either they’ve come up with an amazing save or they’ve made a mess of something routine.
Unfortunately for two of the game’s all-time greats, they found themselves in the spotlight for the latter. Bayern Munich netminder Manuel Neuer isn’t beaten by the opposition very often. So it was a major surprise to see him give up this fairly soft free-kick goal to Schalke on Saturday.
