Goalkeepers who have made grave mistakes at major tournament finals

5)Oliver Kahn: Germany 0-2 Brazil – 2002 World Cup Final The German shotstopper was one of its kind back in his playing days.

Deservedly, Kahn was going to receive the Lev Yashvin award for the best goalkeeper of the tournament having conceded a solitary goal until the 66th minute of the final, when a rampant shot from Rivaldo was only pushed right into the path of Ronaldo by the legendary Bayern…
