Manuel Neuer Hopes Nobody Saw This Kick in the Face

By Stephen Fuchs on Email @StephenWFuchs

During Saturday’s World Cup qualifier game against the Czech Republic, Germany’s prized goalkeeper Manuel Neuer demonstrated why he is best served in the box and not out on the field.

Neuer, no doubt a huge asset to the German team, went to retrieve a ball in the German box, but a simple kick sent it flying into his face. We all have our moments, but unfortunately the camera’s documented the embarrassing moment for everyone to see.
