Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka has produced one of the worst goalkeeping errors ever at Euro 2020.
The 32-year-old is the man between the posts for Slovakia in their last group-stage game of the tournament against Spain as they look to reach the knockouts.
Having held off the 2010 World Cup champions for 30 minutes – and saved a penalty from Alvaro Morata – his massive error handed Luis Enrique's side the lead.
Pablo Sarabia drove at goal from just outside the penalty box, with his powerful effort hitting the crossbar.
The bounce takes it straight up into the air, with the Newcastle shot-stopper looking to push it onto the roof of the net.
But Dubravka gets his angles all wrong, pushing the ball into his own net to give Spain the lead in Seville.
And viewers took to Twitter to express their shock at the disastrous moment from the Magpies shot-stopper.
"Oh Dubravka, what have you just done," one viewer said.
While another commented: "What the f*** was that Dubravka!"
And it was only 17 minutes before Dubravka had another shocking moment for Slovakia between the posts.
From a corner kick, the ball was played from the edge of the penalty box into Morata.
The Newcastle man tries to chase him down but gets there second.
He then chases the Atletico Madrid forward away from goal, leaving Manchester City's Aymeric Laporte free to head the forward's looped cross into an open net.
With Spain leading 2-0 at half time and Sarabia adding a third on 56 minutes, it means the Euro 2012 champions are now second in the group.
And Slovakia, having won their first game 2-1 against Poland, are now fighting for their place in the round-of-16.
They are currently on three points with a goal difference of -3, which puts them in the bottom two in the mini-table.
