Manuel Neuer is considered by many to be the best goalkeeper in the world, but the German shot stopper almost blotted his copybook with a terrible throw during his nation's draw with Ghana.
With the score at 2-2 in the 70th minute, the ball appeared to escape Neuer's hands prematurely. But, like a true professional, he didn't lose sight of the wayward ball and booted it 60 yards down the field.
That's a pretty decent recovery from a potentially catastrophic fail.
It's an unusual mistake from the German, who is capable of throwing the ball further than most mortals can kick it...
