Benfica shot stopper Mile Svilar will have his competitive debut haunting him.
The talented Belgian goalkeeper of Serbian descent made quite an impression for the Portuguese side but it was his inexperience that cost Benfica a defeat. Instead of punching the ball away after Marcus Rashford’s cross Svilar decided to catch it but ended up carrying it behind the goal line.
Crushed and emotionally distraught after the game, Svilar was comforted by his compatriot Romelu Lukaku in a video that won the internet last night.
Sportsmanship at its finest.
