 Footballers, like all of us, are human and can make mistakes. Various footballers' careers have been ruined by crazy mistakes over the years and in this article, we bring you three players who have fallen out of favour. accidentally in a game. 


 Loris Karius 


Liverpool played their first UEFA Champions League final since losing to AC Milan 2007 in Athens on 26 May 2018. Real Madrid, a European powerhouse with Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale in his ranks, set out to meet the Reds. 




 Despite Mohamed Salah's early injury, the Reds stayed in the game until goalkeeper Loris Karius made a serious error that gave Benzema a goal and ended the team's chances of lifting that prestigious trophy. To make matters worse, he made another blunder when he deflected Gareth Bale's long-range shot into his own goal. That night, Real Madrid triumphed 31.  



 Liverpool recruited Brazilian Alisson Becker from AS Roma the following year. Alisson would take over. as starting goalkeeper while Karius would go on loan. That night in Kyiv will live on in Karius' nightmares as he has not played a competitive minute for Liverpool since and will not play again. 


 With Alisson on the job, Karius was fired and signed a two-year loan deal with Turkey's Besiktas. His time in Turkey started well but he kept making mistakes. 


 The German would return to his home country on loan from Union Berlin. With him spending most of the season on the bench replacing Andreas Luthe, the same issues came up. 




 Loris Karius is Liverpool's fourth-best goalkeeper three and a half years later, still fighting to atone and shaking off the narrative of what happened that night in KieKyiv


 Jonathan Woodgate 




 Jonathan Woodgate has been described by Bobby Robson as "one of the top four English centre-backs in the Premier League" along with Sol Campbell, Rio Ferdinand and Gareth Southgate. 


 He had that kind of ability but injuries limited him to 37 games throughout the season and a half. Real Madrid saw enough in the 24-year-old to pay £13.4m to bring him to the Bernabeu despite his injury in 2004. 


 Jonathan Woodgate had not played for 17 months when he has kicked to the starting line-up against Athletic Bilbao just four games into the La Liga season. 


 Woodgate was no doubt keen to make his mark on his return to football and appearance in Madrid and was hoping to score on his debut and he did so in the 25th minute. the ghost. 


 Woodgate's enthusiasm was overwhelming when he was booked to go after Carlos Gerpegui, who was now doubly eager to prove himself to the Madrid skescepticse was cautioned twice in the second half and eventually sent off for a foul on Joseba. Etxeberria. 


 He had waited 13 months to make his Real Madrid debut and should have walked off after 66 minutes wishing he had waited a little longer. He never played more than three consecutive games in LaLiga this season and was loaned to Middlesbrough at the end of the season after making just 14 appearances for Los Blancos in all competitions. 


 Rob Green 




 On 12 June 2010, in the opening match against the USA at the 2010 FIFA World Cup, Robert Green made a catastrophic error for England, one of the most scrutinized teams in the world The event itself demands not much explanation; Everyone knows how it developed. Eng land seemed to be responsible because Steven Gerrard scored a well useful target for four minutes. It was a particularly low time for him, and he seems to have caused the decline of his career.
