Germany goalkeeper scores for United States

During Sunday's matcup between Germany and the United States, Germany goalkeeper Marc-André ter Stegen scored a goal for the US. That's right, folks. In an attempt to retrieve a simple backpass from teammate Benedikt Höwedes, Ter Stegen let the roll by and then tried to chase it down but failed.

During Sunday's matcup between Germany and the United States, Germany goalkeeper Marc-André ter Stegen scored a goal for the US. That's right, folks. In an attempt to retrieve a simple backpass from teammate Benedikt Höwedes, Ter Stegen let the roll by and then tried to chase it down but failed.

That goal came after Jozy Altidore of the US scored to get the 1-0 lead over Germany. 

Needless to say, the goalkeeper will forever remember that goal, as I'm sure his teammates will not let him live that one down.
