Gareth Bale stepped up and struck a well-hit shot from distance, and although the ball was fairly central, Hart could only parry the ball into the corner of the net.
Naturally, it sparked reaction on Twitter. Goal takes a look at some of the best, including words of criticism from a couple of Premier League goalkeepers.
Poor Joe Hart..should not even have a wall from that distance.xmb— Mark Bosnich (@TheRealBozza) June 16, 2016
Re Bale goal look at the wall. That's the biggest mistake by Hart, dont put one up. If he doesn't he can start in the MIDDLE of the goal 1/2— Peter Schmeichel (@Pschmeichel1) June 16, 2016
So even if the ball is all over the place he can move quicker. Also the wall becomes a target only 10y away, gives better aim for Bale2/2— Peter Schmeichel (@Pschmeichel1) June 16, 2016
Bale is a superstar but Hart has got to save that.— Jamie Carragher (@Carra23) June 16, 2016
Joe Hart makes way too many mistakes to be considered a top keeper. Awful mistake for that goal— Tom Hancher (@hanchwwfc) June 16, 2016
Shout out to Ben Davies for being a better keeper than Joe Hart— JOHN (@johnbowler96) June 16, 2016
I just asked Joe Hart what happened for Gareth Bale's goal. He said not now, James.— Boring James Milner (@BoringMilner) June 16, 2016
