5 footballers fans won't forget for their mistakes

Football is a game of love but there will be a time when a simple mistake will dent your name among your fans. There are some of the players that made a mistake that led to their teams defeat and their fans started booing and mocking them. In this article, I want to list out the players that made a mistake that football fans can never forget.

1) Gonzalo Higuain: The Argentinian forward made a very terrible mistake that would have made Argentina to win the world cup in 2014 against Germany. The striker missed a 1 on 1 opportunity against Manuel Neuer.

2) Andres Escobar: The Colombian international made a terrible mistake against the United States during the 1994 FIFA World Cup. Stretching to block a cross from American midfielder John Harkes, he inadvertently deflected the ball into his own net. This mistake even led to his own death.

3) Lionel Messi: This is a very good football player but he missed a penalty that would have given Argentina the Copa America against Chile.

4) John Terry: The England defender is a legend in Chelsea. But Chelsea fans won't forget his penalty miss against Manchester United in 2008. Manchester United and Chelsea was playing in the final Cristiano Ronaldo missed his penalty and if John Terry had scored that goal, Chelsea would have lifted their first Champions League trophy but John Terry slipped.

5) Steven Gerrard: Liverpool would have won the Premier League trophy in 2014 but their dreams was shattered when Steven Gerrard slipped and gave the ball away to Demba Ba who scored a goal.

Which of these players mistake did you find difficult to forget? Say your thoughts in the comments section below.
