It's hard enough being a goalkeeper without the ridicule of others but, despite GMF's sympathy with the game's glovemen, we feel duty bound to highlight a truly shocking example of work between the sticks.

One error can be enough to give a 'keeper the jitters, two mistakes will ensure their confidence is shot to pieces, but three howlers in a single game could send a shot-stopper to the dole queue.

Spare a thought then for poor Rudar goalie Alen Pašagić who made three inexplicable gaffes the opening 45 minutes of his side's 4-1 defeat to Koper on Saturday.

Poor handling, bad decision making and downright calamity made for a first-half Pašagić will want to forget as the Slovenian endured one of the worst performances ever seen by a player in his position.

It was a display of breathtaking ineptitude from the 23-year-old, and one you really have to see to believe it was even possible.

Watch the all three shocking errors in the video below, and many thanks to 101greatgoals for initially embarrassing the unfortunate Alen Pašagić.
