(Video) Joe Hart’s afternoon goes from bad to worse as howler costs Torino against Atalanta

Posted by

Joe Hart had a Torino debut to forget on Sunday as this howler gifted Atalanta an equaliser, before the hosts scored a penalty to seal a 2-1 win.

The England international started well as he made a key save to keep Atalanta out in the first half, with a clean sheet very much on the cards in his first Serie A appearance.

However, it wasn’t to last as he flapped at the cross above which in turn allowed Andrea Masiello to fire home an equaliser before La Dea added a second to claim all three points with Hart unable to keep out Franck Kessie’s spot-kick.

The day didn’t get off to a particularly positive start either as a gaffe on the team sheets saw ‘John Hart’ start in goal for the visitors, and despite moving to Italy from Manchester City on a season-long loan, it hasn’t prevented Hart’s miserable day being picked up across social media.

He’ll hope for better moving forward, as it will undoubtedly take time for him to settle in his new surroundings and perform consistently well for Sinisa Mihajlovic’s side.
