He’s universally regarded as one of the more promising young goalkeepers in European football, but Borussia Monchengladbach’s Marc-Andre ter Stegen did his rising stock no favours at all last night when he dropped an almighty clanger during Germany’s surprise 4-3 defeat against the USA.

In an attempt to play it out from the back, Benedikt Howedes found himself caught in possession and rolled the back to his ‘keeper – only for Ter Stegen to go all “Enckelman” on his ass…


While we’re talking strictly “Germany B” again here, Clint Dempsey scored a couple to take himself onto 35 international goals in 96 caps, slipping past Eric Wynalda and into second place on the all-time USA scoring chart, 14 goals behind Landon Donovan in top spot.
