Watch Spain star Unai Simon score horror own goal as keeper lets halfway line back-pass creep under foot against Croatia


UNAI SIMON scored an horrendous personal objective as Spain slipped 1-Zero down early on towards Croatia due to the ‘howler of the event’.

The Spaniards had totally dominated the opening 20 minutes of the sport, with practically 80 per cent of the ball.

However Simon allowed a 45-yard back-pass to sneak previous him and into the again of the online to offer Croatia a shock 1-Zero lead.

Dion Dublin instructed the BBC: “What a mistake from the goalkeeper.

“His focus ranges drop. He takes his eye off the ball, he’s not even trying on the ball.

“If you happen to’re in any doubt in any respect you be sure to get the most important a part of your physique behind the ball.

“He switches off.

“I believe it’s the primary assume that the keeper’s needed to do of any seriousness in anyway.”

Ex-England star Izzy Christiansen added: “My phrase. The ball has travelled a minimum of 45 yards.

“Sure, the ball was bouncing, however there isn’t a excuse. The ball was even within the shadow on this pitch.

“You’ll by no means see a more strange personal objective than that.

“Full lapse in focus and he’s taken his eye off of it on the final second.”
