Things have been going pretty well for Luca Zidane, the son of Real Madrid legend and current manager Zinedine, recently.
The 18-year-old goalkeeper was rather surprising involved in Los Blancos' first team pre-season schedule this summer, and he was even named in the squad for Madrid's recent Super Cup contest against Sevilla.
Unfortunately, after returning to Real Madrid's Castilla B team for the season proper, he came crashing back down to Earth on Saturday night after committing something every 'keeper succumbs to at some point in their career - an outright goalkeeping howler.

Luca was in net for Castilla as they took on Real Sociedad last night and, with the score tied up at 0-0 after five minutes or so, the ball came rolling towards him courtesy of a soft back pass from a teammate.
Then this happened...
As a goalie, nobody expects Zidane Jr. to have the footwork and passing range of his acclaimed father - there aren't many players in the history of the game who were at his level.
However, you'd like to think he'd be able to pick out a teammate rather than roll the ball to an opposition striker with no pressure on him.
Obviously, at just 18-years-old, there is plenty of time for Luca Zidane to hone his skills on the pitch and, considering his recent involvement with the first team, he is clearly highly regarded by Madrid.
And it isn't like he is the first 'keeper to fall victim to a howler. The great and the good of the game have all endured some tough moments during their career.
Unfortunately for Luca, though, as the son of Zinedine Zidane, your every move it always going to be scrutinised.
Although Castilla managed to come back from 2-0 down to win this weekend's fixture 3-2, his father might have a harder time trying to convince his staff of his son's quality the next time he is in need of a goalkeeper to boost the first team numbers.
