MOST COMMENTED

Two days after being called up by the U.S. national team, San Jose goalkeeper David Bingham botched badly — turning a tame deflected shot by Soony Saad  into a Kansas City goal during the Earthquakes 2-1 loss. Saad’s strike was headed wide before it bounced between both Bingham’s hands and feet.

Bingham didn’t look so good on KC's first goal, either, when he stayed rooted as Benny Feilhaber struck from 27 yards (1:00 mark)

    Unfortunately that happens in our game. That is why your always on the practice field working on the game. Usually, if you have the whole sequence and not part of it you will be able to see a mistake a field player made before that own goal ever happened. I believe goals are scored and let in by the team. There is usually at the beginning some play where a team mate could have stopped a goal but instead of high pressuring the player he relaxed then 4 or 5 passes later a goal is scored against your team which could have been stopped. I think a manager should point that out. Takes the pressure off the keeper a little, and gets his team mates to immediately pressure the opponent with the ball at the beginning of transition to defense.

    Agree that field players' mistakes and deflections often put the keeper in a difficult position having to make almost impossible saves, but that was not the case with these goals. Pure and simple lack of concentration on the Bingham's part here. First video, Bingham was clearly worried about KC's player immediately in front of him, but he needs to focus on the ball. Second video, Feilhaber's shot was curving and dipping, but Bingham should have made play for the ball even if he thought it was going high. To quote a famous ESPN shtick "C'mon Man." Worried if he gets playing time against Honduras or Panama.
