Watch: Joe Hart cost a goal with an horrendous error on his Torino debut

Joe Hart doesn't appear to be able to handle those Serie A crosses.

You'd think all his experience of playing in the Premier League, and dealing with aerial bombardment the likes of which those foreign goalkeepers from abroad just don't understand, would serve him well when attempting to collect crosses into the penalty area.

However, you'd be wrong.

England's number one goalkeeper made an awful error on his Torino debut, gifting Atalanta an equaliser on Sunday afternoon.

Hart came to collect a cross from a corner, but flapped at it and knocked it into the path of Andrea Masiello to make it 1-1. Atalanta went on to win 2-1.

Hart's error comes just a day after Claudio Bravo, his replacement at Manchester City, committed a howler of his own in the Manchester derby.

The Chilean came to collect a cross from a free-kick, but spilled the ball into the path of Zlatan Ibrahimovic who pulled a goal back for Manchester United in their 1-2 defeat.

However, there's an argument to be made that Hart's error was significantly worse. It may even put to bed any doubts that Pep Guardiola made the right decision in allowing the player to leave City on-loan.
