Bundesliga keeper makes THREE howlers in one game

Ok everyone, gather round for one of the most hilarious football videos you are likely to see for some time - unless you support Freiburg or are Oliver Baumann.

The German had what could be described as the worst performance ever seen from a goalkeeper in his side's 3-0 defeat at home to Hamburg on Sunday afternoon.

Goal one saw him come charging out of his goal, completely misjudge the bounce and watched the ball go over his head to leave an open goal for Max Beister to roll into an open net.

At that point you're thinking, wow that was bad, but it happens to the best 'keepers sometimes, so he shouldn't beat himself up about it.

Viewers were most definitely not thinking that way just after halt time when Baumann came out too far again, realised he couldn't pick it up, tried to turn back into the area, failed to catch the ball and watched on in despair as Pierre-Michel Lasogga walked the ball home.

One reason for Baumann's nerves could be the presence of Joachim Löw, who turned up amid talk that the 23-year-old could be getting a call-up to the Germany squad.

He had most likely already blundered his way out of Löw's plans, but made sure of it when he spilled a low shot at the feet on Rafael van der Vaart for the Dutchman to slot home the third.

You will just have to watch for yourself above...
