Goalie Momentarily Forgets Where He Is, Concedes Very Dumb Goal

Soccer is hard. There are so many other people on the field: teammates, referees, opponents, occasionally the odd dog. One can be forgiven for the occasional lapse. However, this howler from Ottawa Fury FC goalkeeper Callum Irving is a transcendent fuckup.

This boneheaded play took place in the second leg of a Canadian Championship tie between Ottawa Fury FC and FC Edmonton. Thankfully, Ottawa were not bounced from the competition over Irving’s forgetfulness, as they advanced 4-2 on aggregate. Somehow, this is still orders of magnitude more forgivable than the dumbest-ever howler.

Correction (12:18 a.m.): Thanks to some very persistent FC Edmonton supporters, we’ve fixed the club name and the manner by which Ottawa advanced in the tournament.
