Keepy-uppy keeper juggles out of trouble - concedes horror goal

Cologne goalkeeper Timo Horn endured a day to forget on the opening day of the German second division season on Saturday, after his foolish error was solely responsible for his side's 1-1 draw with Dynamo Dresden at the Glucksgas Stadion.

Having taken the lead midway through the second-half thanks to a strike from Anthony Ujah, the hosts were gifted an equalising goal by the 20-year-old stopper.

After receiving a backpass and finding himself quickly under pressure from an opposition player, Horn chose to try and juggle his way out of trouble, rather than hoofing the ball clear of danger.

Unsurprisingly, that crazy decision led to a calamitous result, with the young German stopper dispossessed by Dynamo's Tobias Kempe, who proceeded to loft the ball into the unguarded net, to level the scores with just 10 minutes remaining.

Of course, Horn is not the first goalkeeper - and definitely won't be the last - to try, and fail with the ball at his feet. But, at least it gives us something to laugh about in the build-up to the new season!
