You don't see goalkeeping blunders like this every day

PSV Eindhoven needed something from their trip to Feyenoord on Sunday.

If they were to keep in the Eredivisie title race, a point was the very least that they required as they aimed to claw their way back into the running with their table-topping opponents.

The tie was finely poised at 1-1 when PSV forward Gaston Pereiro snatched an equaliser on the hour mark after Jens Toornstra had opened the scoring for Feyenoord early on.

An intense finish looked on the cards but, all of a sudden, PSV goalkeeper Jeroen Zoet handed all three points to the hosts.

Zoet looked to have pulled off a routine save from a Jan-Arie van der Heijden header, killing the ball dead on the line.

Everything was going according to plan.

But, dreadfully unaware of his surroundings, Zoet then looked to scoop the ball into his chest but forgot that he so happened to be sat over the goal-line.

As the ball crossed the white line, the referee's watch buzzed and signalled that a goal should be awarded to Feyenoord.

PSV now sit 11 points behind the leaders after 24 games and one wouldn't fancy their chances of making up the difference.

And the unfortunate goalkeeper was not in the least bit happy about the goal-line technology that had caught him out.

"This is seriously fucked up", Zoet told NOS. "The goal-line technology made the difference and things could have been different if it had not.

"He went only by his watch. If that had not happened, I think he would have said no goal.

"You should always keep believing in things, but the title is very far away. [It's] a serious blow."
