This tweet from Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius is coming back to haunt him after Champions League final heartache

Loris Karius has had a pretty bad night, with the Liverpool goalkeeper producing two absolutely dreadful errors as his side lost the Champions League final to Real Madrid.

The Spanish giants emerged as 3-1 victors in Kiev, with the first goal coming about after Karius pretty much just threw the ball straight at Karim Benzema under no pressure.

The German then failed to keep out a long-range effort from Gareth Bale for the third goal, in what will go down as one of the worst goalkeeping performances ever seen in such an important game.

Just a few days earlier, Karius tweeted that he had his ‘eyes on the prize’, which is now being retweeted mercilessly, while some fans also troll him for messing up in tonight’s big game.
