Declan Rice is the ‘Chelsea boy’ – Tuchel, Lionel Messi LOST, Eden Hazard to Fenerbahce


As the saying goes, you have to be crazy to be a goalkeeper… and these No 1s have provided us with some wacky moments, write JON BOON.

In between the sticks for Manchester United, David De Gea received the strangest goal of the game against Arsenal, when his teammate Fred jerked his heel, leaving him on the field as Emile Smith Rowe volleyed from outside the box.

Controversial goal is allowed to stand when referee Martin Atkinson fails to blow his whistle before the ball crosses the line to stop play.

But it wasn’t the only odd moment involving the goalkeeper as SunSport looked back at some classic incidents…


The unfortunate mistake of former Blackburn goalkeeper, Tim Flowers, always appeared on blooper programs.


On a beach, a beach ball is a lot of fun. But on the football field, it’s a potential danger for goalkeepers

Just ask former Liverpool and Spain goalkeeper Pepe Reina, who watched a shot from Sunderland striker Darren Bent go wide past him in the 0-1 loss in 2009


That’s the most remarkable savings you’ll ever see.

England took on Colombia in 1995, which resulted in a dull 0-0 draw.

However, it was revived by madcap Rene Higuita’s infamous scorpion kick.


He is behind you!

Apparently, Shay Given didn’t get the memo that Dion Dublin at center 6ft 2in was sneaking up behind him.

So the Irishman decided to let the ball roll out in front of him as he prepared to toss the ball forward for Newcastle against Coventry City in the 1997-98 season.

Cue Dublin grabbed the loose ball and swept it home.


Give your mind to his opponent, Ben Foster as no goalkeeper wants to be scored against his opponent’s net.

But that’s exactly what happened to the Watford striker, when former Spurs star Paul Robinson unleashed a monstrous free-kick from deep in his half in a game since 2007.
