Vine: Comical goals set Germany on their way against Gibraltar

Just no...

Conan Doherty

What is that?  Just what on earth is that?

They say don’t poke the bear but sometimes people walk right into the bear’s mouth, as Gibraltar did with this horrendous goal they’ve just conceded.

Germany might not have got off to the best of starts in Group D, the world champions winning just one of their opening three games of the Euro 16 qualifiers, but they are back up and running again on course for their seventh point and what a silly, silly way to do it.

Joachim Low’s men are facing off with lowly Gibraltar, the same side Ireland knocked seven past, and do you know what, you can tell.

This goal is ridiculous.  A rubbish cross, that the ‘keeper seems to just watch, hits his post, hits a defender and Thomas Muller – obviously – comes strolling in asking if this is too good to be true.

Muller added a second shortly after before Mario Gotze bettered his assist with a goal himself to send the Germans in at the break 3-0 up.

The away side kept it tight for a lot of the second period but, again, Gibraltar were the masters of their own downfall, this own goal helping Germany to a handy fourth.
