Video: Bizarre 'keeper error leads to two goals!

In an amateur game in Italy a howler by a goalkeeper managed to lead to two goals after he let a pass back from a drop ball through his legs.

In what has to rank as one of the strangest passages of play ever seen a goalkeeper in a lower league Italian game caused two strange goals to be scored.

A game between Fersina Perginese and Dro turned into a pantomime when a drop ball was called after a clash between two players.

The Fersina Perginese side attempted to pass the ball back to the Dro goalkeeper in an act of Fair Play but the 'keeper allowed the slowly rolling pass through his legs and into the net.

Amazingly, the Fersina Perginese team then allowed Dro to kick off and score unopposed to write off the error.

The game in Italy's Serie D ended 3-3 and has attracted nationwide attention in Italy due to the two bizarre goals.
