Ah, the life of a goalkeeper never seems to be straightforward now does it. For even the most esteemed of glovemen, a clanger is always waiting around the corner, and while one day you may be cock of the walk, the next you are a feather duster.

Spare a thought then for ES Setif keeper Sofiane Khedairia, who was undone this weekend through no real fault of his own, as the penalty area played a signifcant part in assisting a vital goal for MC Alger.

One his way to collect an errant cross, seemingly in no danger at all, Khedairia witnessed the ball bounce up from the turf and spin prodigiously back over his head to allow Hadj Bouguèche a chance to score.

It really was a quite remarkable incident and, to make matters worse, contributed to dumping ES Setif out of the Algerian Coupe Nationale at the semi-final stage.

Watch the incident in the video below, and thanks to 101greatgoals for bringing this to our attention.
