The Bayern Munich defender nearly cost Joachim Low's side a place in the semi-finals - and people on Twitter were quick to mock him

Jerome Boateng will have only just got over those Lionel Messi memes - but now he’s got a new batch to contend with.

With Germany leading 1-0 and edging towards the Euro 2016 semi-finals, the Bayern Munich centre-back gave away a penalty with a stupid handball and Leonardo Bonucci stepped up to pull Italy level.

Fortunately for Boateng, his blushes were spared as Germany scraped through to the semi-finals via a penalty shootout.

Still, though, that absurd blunder will not be forgotten any time soon, as fans on Twitter made clear.
