Vincent Kompany Shows His Class For Young Compatriot

A horrendous error from Belgium under-17s net-minder Jens Teunckens saw his team knocked out of the under-17 World Cup at the semi final stage to Mali. It was one of those one-in-a-million mistakes that simply doesn’t have an explanation – as you can see below.

Since the howler, young Teunckens has received support from none other than Manchester City and Belgium captain Vincent Kompany.

Kompany wrote to the goalkeeper: “Nobody is perfect. Head up and on to the next one. Congratulations to the whole team.” 

But also included in the message was Kompany’s true class – a video from an own goal of his from a few years ago, a spectacular cock-up of an own goal against Fulham!

Hopefully the message cheered the young shot-stopper up, as Kompany sets the example for club and country captains everywhere.
