This is the moment a toddler’s first attempts at goalkeeping went hilariously wrong, when the little boy enthusiastically threw himself in the opposite direction to the ball.
Author Barlow Adams, from Cincinnati, Ohio, filmed himself playing football with his son.
In the video, Barlow’s son is seen standing in front of a fence facing towards the camera as he prepares to try and save a penalty.

The father-of-three then kicks the ball to his son’s right hand side, making sure that the attempt was easy enough for his son to have a chance of saving it.
However, even after it’s clear which direction the ball is travelling, Barlow’s son dramatically throws himself in the opposite direction to the ball.
His son throws his arms up high as if reaching out to make a finger-tip save, and lets out a grunt as he thuds to the ground.
Barlow can be heard laughing at the little boy’s actions.

The video was shared on Twitter by Barlow on September 26 and has been liked more than 101,000 times and has also been retweeted more than 13,000 times.
Seeing the funny side of his son’s attempted save, alongside the video, Barlow posted the caption: ‘Things are still hard. The world is still insane.
‘But none of that will matter soon because my son is going to be an international soccer star and buy us a new life.’
The football fail left people on Twitter in hysterics, with one person saying that could watch the clip ‘a million times’.
Another suggested that if an explosion had been edited into the video, the child’s dive wouldn’t look out of place in an action film.
