When people point at some football goalkeepers whom they describe as the best ones across the world, I simply tell them that “there is nothing like best keepers” except the striker in question did not do his job well. Part of my reasons for this is that the goal post is wide enough for any well-thinking player to see where to place his shots. This was not the case at Wembley on Sunday night when Ole Gunnar’ men encountered Chelsea, when “a worldclass goalkeeper”, David De Gea horrendously proved to the world that “irrespective of how good one has been adjudged to be at what he/she does there’s always room for mistakes”.
Those two avoidable costly mistakes completely mared the Red Devil’s progress as their journey ended on Sunday night after the Blues found the net three times and the Bruno Fernandes’ penalty kick consolation goal could not prove a point for Manchester United. Chelsea by this, will be meeting Arsenal on Saturday, the 1s day of August at same Wembley Stadium for a final.
