Jordan Archer is beginning to establish himself as one of the unluckiest goalkeepers in the world. It was Archer that was attacked by an idiotic Gillingham supporter during Wycombe’s 1-0 win at Priestfield in February.
That assault was clearly not his fault but he was certainly to blame for one of England Under-21s’ goals in a 6-0 victory against their Scotland counterparts on Tuesday night.
Scotland were already trailing 2-0 at Bramall Lane in Sheffield when Archer attempted to clear the ball from out of his hands with, er, limited success. To be fair Connor Wickham pounced on the chance with a great finish to compound Scotland’s misery.
