Marc-André ter Stegen was only starting for Germany because Manuel Neuer was busy nursing a hangover after Bayern Munich completed an unprecedented treble on Saturday, although Stegen's clanger against the USA suggested he was just as wobbly.

Stegen horribly misjudged Benedikt Höwedes' back pass 18 minutes in to the Washington DC friendly, allowing the ball to slide underneath his boot and trickle over the line for an own goal to give the US a 2-0 lead.

A decent tribute to Peter Enckelman, what makes Stegen's mistake so ignominious is how he ends up in the back of the net with the ball, which always makes goals looks better.

Jürgen Klinsmann-managed US actually went 4-1 ahead midway through the second 45, with Germany pulling two goals back for a 4-3 scoreline in the friendly.
