VIDEO: Western Sydney goalkeeper needlessly gives away corner then concedes added-time equaliser

Inexplicable gaffe costs team victory.



Western Sydney Wanderers goalkeeper Vedran Janjetović needlessly conceded a corner which allowed Brisbane Roar to score a last-gasp equaliser.

His team had looked set for a comfortable away win in Friday’s A-League match at the Suncorp Stadium, taking a 2-0 lead into stoppage time.


Home side Brisbane then pulled one back, before Janjetović’s inexplicable 94th minute blunder set up a dramatic finish.

As the ball bounced out of play for what would have been a goal-kick, the Croatian tamely swang a boot at it on the touchline and attempted to gather it.


Had he left it, that would likely have been the end of the game – but his fumbled efforts to collect it resulted in a corner from which Adam Taggart scored.

The draw ended a run of six straight defeats for Wanderers, who are managed by former Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Germany defender Markus Babbel.

They lie second from bottom in the Australian top-flight, one point ahead of Brisbane Roar.
