Loris Karius has posted on Instagram after his Champions League final nightmare

Real Madrid v Liverpool - UEFA Champions League Final

The Champions League final was a heartbreaking occasion for Loris Karius.

Selected between the sticks for one of the biggest games in Liverpool's history, it turned out to be a disastrous evening in Kiev for the German shot stopper.

The 24-year-old was at fault for two of Real Madrid's goals.

He inexplicably rolled the ball out to Karim Benzema for Los Blancos' opening strike, with the Frenchman stabbing home.

Karius couldn't do anything about Gareth Bale's stunning bicycle kick but conceded his second goal with a moment of pure calamity, allowing a long range strike to slip through his grasp.

The heartbroken shot stopper spoke to talkSPORT after the game, stating: "Today I lost my team the game and I feel sorry for everyone. I’m sorry for everyone – from the team, from the whole club – that the mistakes cost dearly.

"If I could go back in time, I would. I feel sorry for my team. I know I let them down today."
