Sudan keeper Ehab Zohgber will be playing this back in his head for a long time.
In a World Cup Qualifier vs. Ghana, Sudan trailed 2-1 late and was looking to salvage the game with a draw. In the 83rd minute, Ghana set up for a routine corner kick where things got ‘out of hand’ quickly.
Ghana’s Sulley Muntari sent in the corner kick but it zipped straight to Zohgber for an easy stop, that is, until the keeper drops the ball into his own goal. Embarrassing.
Though Sudan’s World Cup qualifying chances were bleak to begin with, things have quickly shifted from bad to worse and he’s not likely to ever live this down in his country.
