Day 3 of the tournament saw another keeping gaffe

Day three of the tournament brought another awful goalkeeping gaffe, this time from Algeria's Faouzi Chaouchi who fumbled in a goal from Slovenian captain Robert Koren, giving his team their first win in major tournament finals.

The mistake was not as embarrassing as England's Robert Green, however, who allowed the United States to equalise on Saturday with a schoolboy howler that made him a laughing stock in his home country.

But it added to complaints from coaches about the high bouncing Jabulani ball, the semi-synthetic turf in Polokwane and Nelspruit and the deafening noise of vuvuzela trumpets which makes it difficult for them to communicate with the players.
