Bayern Forward Goes Dark On Social Media After Getting Clowned For Unreal Miss

Safe Hands: Ranking All 24 Starting Goalkeepers At Euro 2020

The build-up to every major international tournament is the same: who has the best striker? Or, this is why x midfielder is going to dominate or why this winger is the key to this country getting out of its group.
