German Goalie Marc-Andre Ter Stegen's Embarrassing Mistake Costs His Team A Win
German goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen made a horrendous mistake letting the ball slip between his legs, giving the U.S. a win in a game celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the U.S. Soccer Federation.
With the U.S. up 1-0 in the first half, Ter Stegan, 21, was receiving a backpass from one of his teammates in front of their goal. Seemingly under pressure and confused, Ter Stegen let the ball slide right past him and into the goal with no time to recover.

Germany got back into the game, scoring three goals. However, those weren’t enough, as the U.S. ultimately won the game with a 4-3 victory.
In a video showing Ter Stegen's goofy mistake, the commentator exclaimed in amazement, “You can’t believe it, what a terrible mistake by Ter Stegen, the goal keeper. And the U.S. finds themselves 2 up in 16 minutes. That was a nightmare, what was the goalkeeper thinking there?”
