Russian Goalie Bobbles Ball, Allows Korea To Score In 2014 World Cup (GIF)


Russian goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev was having a fine game against South Korea in the 2014 FIFA World Cup until the 68th minute.

After holding the South Koreans scoreless for much of Tuesday night’s game, Lee Keun-ho took a soft shot toward Akinfeev, who got his hands on the ball momentarily but dropped it and knocked it into the net.

Korea Goal

We’ve seen some outstanding goalkeeping in the World Cup, and Akinfeev’s blunder has to be the most embarrassing gaffe at the moment.

Fortunately for Igor, Russia scored the equalizer soon after, and he was able to let out a sigh of relief.
