Brisbane Roar's Jamie Young makes hilarious error

Brisbane Roar v Liverpool FC

Brisbane Roar goalkeeper Jamie Young found himself at the centre of an embarrassing gaffe in today's game against Melbourne City that can only be described as one of the strangest goalkeeping moments ever.

As the 30-year-old keeper attempted to throw the ball out to a team-mate, he slipped backwards, dropping the ball between his legs where it proceeded to roll into the feet of a Melbourne attacker.

Luckily for Brisbane and more-importantly, Young, City failed to capitalise on the mistake, after the forward rounded the goalkeeper before laying it off to a team-mate who shot just wide of the far post.

The former Reading and Wycombe Wanderers goalkeeper was born in Brisbane and joined his hometown club in 2014. 

So far, he has made 28 appearances for The Roar, but after this latest error, it may be his last for a while.

The video of the gaffe was instantly shared on Twitter, see below.

The game finished 1-1 - luckily for Brisbane,Young's mistake didn't cost them.


Twitter reacted - obviously.
