Video: Get the Goalie Some Glasses!

It was the hilarious air-kick that left the Mainz goalkeeper red faced.

Robin Zentner made the embarrassing mistake of not following the ball and almost let slip a goal to the opposition in front of 46,000 fans at Borussia Park.

But luckily for the 23-year old 'keeper he got away with it, and explained that he somehow managed to mistake the penalty spot for the ball.

Watch the video:

"The ball was passed back to me with a bit of backspin," Zentner said.

"In the corner of my eye, I could see something white and I thought it was the ball — but it was the penalty spot and the ball was somewhere else."

What do you think happened? Backspin or a bit of a blonde moment?
