Video: Feyenoord score on stroke of half-time after wall lets Hart down

Celtic have gone into the half time break 1-0 down after Calvin Stengs’ free-kick went through the wall. Joe Hart was furious as the 24-year-old’s strike appeared to go through the gap vacated by Kyogo to allow the Dutch side the lead.

Arguably, Hart has put the wall in place to cover that side as he covers the other side of the goal. However, the free-kick has been smuggled through the wall, bounced and skid off the surface into the net. The Celtic No.1 could’ve certainly moved his feet a little quicker but why is one of the team’s smallest players being set up in the wall?

It is a poor end to the half in which Celtic have been comfortable. The hosts, who are Pot One, have looked fine but they have not threatened to outclass Brendan Rodgers’ team thus far.

  1. Bullshit,,,Hart should have had that covered and Scales should never be on the park again. Whole side was woeful and made a bad Feyenoord look good

  2. I saw that goal happening. It was Leigh Griffiths all over again. Hart exaggerates his positioning when it comes to which side of the goal is more vulnerable. Oh! You’re standing over there! Fair enough. I will shoot here. Personally, I’ve always believed that a keeper evaluates the weak and strong side of any free kick and the wall built and steps one to one and half side steps left or right of centre. Always keep somewhat of a central placement knowing you can possibly have the chance of a finger tip save on both sides. Hart was way over to his right. If he was closer to centre that ball would have been saved.
