It's Friday.

That means Friday Fun in AFTN and what better fun can you have than to laugh at a goalkeeping mistake from an English keeper?!

Sometimes I curse my luck that I have two teams to follow now on the international stage that are both under achievers at the big tournaments - Scotland and Canada.

Once in a while they give you something to shout about and the Canadian under-17's have done just that at this month's U17 World Cup in Mexico.

Step forward goalkeeper Quillan Roberts, who scored this fantastically hilarious goal in Wednesday's group game against England:

The look of disbelief on Roberts face is priceless. He really doesn't know what to do to celebrate the historic moment!

What is even more remarkable in this story is that Roberts is the back up keeper and was only playing after the first choice goalie was injured towards the end of the first group game against Uruguay.

As for English goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, he can console himself as now being in the same category as English goalkeeping "greats" like David Seaman, David James and Rob Green when it comes to fucking up in major matches.

Good old England. They never let us down!
