WATCH: The goalkeeping blunder that helped Manchester United beat Benfica
The poor goalkeeper should have just tipped the ball over the net
Manchester United beat Benfica 1-0 on Wednesday in the Champions League group stage in one of oddest ways possible. Benfica's 18-year-old goalkeeper Mile Svilar, the youngest starting goalkeeper in the competition's history, walked into his goal with the ball while attempting to stop a free kick. Take a look:
Shocking. A youngster simply making a mistake, and you have to feel bad for him. Many on the field did, including his opponents. Svilar is from Belgium, and so is United star Romelu Lukaku, who went up to the player to console him after the game. Classy stuff.
