Jeepers keepers – 5 blunders that left goalkeepers red-faced

Jordan Pickford has had a Merseyside derby nightmare.

England number one Jordan Pickford had a moment to forget as his stoppage-time howler handed Liverpool a dramatic 1-0 victory over Everton.

Pickford has established himself as Gareth Southgate's first-choice stopper in 2018 but it may take him some time to forget this error.

Rather than let a Virgil Van Dijk hoof go over his bar, he opted to try and keep it in, patting it down onto the bar and letting Divock Origi tap in a winner.

Here, Press Association Sport looks at five more high-profile goalkeeping blunders.

Loris Karius

Liverpool's Champions League final loss to Real Madrid in May will be forever linked with Karius – a match which led to Alisson's signing. He served up an open goal for Karim Benzema and then let a Gareth Bale strike go through his hands as Liverpool lost 3-1. He was later said to have suffered concussion after an earlier collision with Sergio Ramos.

David Seaman

David Seaman suffered one of the most uncomfortable moments in his Arsenal career in 1995 as former Tottenham man Nayim lobbed him from an outrageous distance in the final moments of extra-time of the Cup Winners' Cup final, handing the trophy to Real Zaragoza.

While undoubtedly one of the great goalkeepers, Seaman has a memorable mistake on his CV not just from his Arsenal days but also at international level. Again, he was caught out by a long-range effort as Ronaldinho's free-kick secured a 2-1 win for Brazil in the 2002 World Cup quarter-final and sent England crashing out.

Robert Green

England were haunted by a goalkeeping gaffe once more at the 2010 World Cup as Green let Clint Dempsey's shot slip from his grasp and over the line in the Three Lions' opener against the United States. The game finished 1-1, Green was dropped, England came second in their group and they were then thrashed 4-1 by Germany in the first knockout round.

Scott Carson

England missed out on Euro 2008 after losing 3-2 at Wembley against Croatia in their final qualifying fixture in November 2007, and it was a mistake by home goalkeeper Carson which sent the visitors on their way to victory as he fumbled an early Niko Kranjcar shot into the net.
