    Indian goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu’s one video clip goes viral and is breaking the internet. In the clip, Jordon’s goalkeeper shoots from his side, and Gurpreet misjudged the angle of the ball which eventually got into the nets. Gurpreet tried to stop the attempt taken unintentionally but was unable to stop.

    This blunder of the Bengaluru goalkeeper has got an overnight success, and people started sharing the clip on social media.

    Indian fans may not want to watch the replay of the clip but have attracted the eyeballs around the world.

    How the world reacted?

    English Journalist Piers Morgan takes a dig at the Indian’s number one goalkeeper by sharing the clip with a caption, “Frankly, who *doesn’t* want to watch a video of Jordan’s goalkeeper scoring against India?”



    In the clip, Jordon’s goalkeeper Amer Shafi cleared the ball from his box targeting towards the opponents, and it cleared the goalkeeper as well, Gurpreet tried to palm it out, but the ball ends up in the nets. This video of Gurpreet became viral on the internet globally.

    Too much friendly!

    India and Jordon were scheduled to play a friendly against each other in front of Jordon’s crowd on 17th November 2018. The match ended up in favour of the hosting nation 2-1, and the difference was created by the blunder made by the Indian defending side.

    The goof was done on the 25th minute of the game when the scoreboard was 0-0. Two other goals were scored by Nishu Kumar India and Ihsan Haddad Jordon for their side at the 61st and 58th minute of the game respectively.

    What’s next?

    Jordon stands at the 112th position while India stands at the 97th position in the FIFA rankings.

    India’s performance on that day looks like a big hole in the preparation for AFC 2019 which should be eliminated before the start of Asia’s most prominent football carnival.
