Duisburg goalkeeper takes sip from his drinks bottle - concedes a goal when he's not looking


Duisburg vs Ingolstadt in the Bundesliga 2 might not interest too many football fans around the world but, after seeing what happened during the first-half of the match, everyone was talking about it.

It was seventh vs eighth in the second-tier in Germany with just one point separating the two sides.

With third place, Kiel, just three points ahead of Duisburg and four clear of Ingolstadt, both sides would have seen this clash as the perfect opportunity to gain ground on the side sitting in the playoff position.

The away side had the perfect chance to take an early lead but Stefan Kutschke missed an 11th-minute penalty for Ingolstadt. They were ruing that missed opportunity even further just two minutes later when Ahmet Engin put Duisburg 1-0 up.

But then the incident happened that has got everyone talking.

And it’s hard to describe just how incredible it really is.

On a sunny day in Germany, Mark Flekken in the Duisburg goal fancied a quick drink. With the ball on the halfway line, he thought he was safe.

However, one long ball and a poor defensive header later, and the ball was a matter of yards from Flekken’s goal. It left Kutschke with the simple task of tapping in the ball, while the ‘keeper incredibly still had his back to play.


He turned round to see Kutschke running off celebrating.

To say that he was shocked was an understatement.

And this has been the reaction on social media as it goes viral:

It’s the sort of goal that will be featuring on every blooper DVD in years to come.

You’ve got to feel sorry for the Dutch goalkeeper but he was very naive to look away from the game for as long as he did.

He certainly won’t be taking a drink from his bottle during a match for the rest of his career.
