Pity Poor Fabianski

Keeping up with the theme, I also have to say that I haven't seen one keeper make two killer mistakes at the level of the UEFA Championship knock-out stages before.

Arsenal backup keeper Lucasz Fabianski did exactly that--misplaying an easy cross that bounced off of him into his net. Early in the second half, he got whistled for picking up a back pass (bad enough) and then gave the ball back to Porto before he got back in his net (worse). Porto played a quick free kick, and had themselves a shot on net while Fabianski still had his back turned on the play. Embarrassing, and the kind of thing that could really really cost Arsenal.
