Video: Horrendous Brazilian goalkeeping howler

Caught out by the dodgy floodlights

When the goalkeeper of Brazilian lower league side Sinop saw a free-kick from opponents Operario ballooned into the air, he decided to just watch it safely over the bar. Or so he thought.

A combination of dreadful weather conditions, ridiculously poor lighting and a freakish dip on the free-kick left the keeper looking like a bit of a muppet.

He was left at the side of his goal doing that half-hearted arms in the air thing that keepers do when they know the ball is sailing over the crossbar, while the ball dropped into his net. He even asks for another ball to take the goal-kick before realising he has conceded!
