The young goalkeeper was caught out trying to play his way out of his own area, leaving Cabezas with an easy chance to put Ecuador ahead

Jonathan Klinsmann has a big name to live up to in the world of football, but it was definitely not like father, like son in a forgettable Under-20 World Cup match. 

The progeny of Germany legend Jurgen is representing the United States in the South Korea-based tournament, and the nation opened their campaign with a clash against dangerous Ecuador

But Klinsmann's feet let him down as the goalkeeper made an awful attempt to play his way out of trouble, eventually gifting the ball to Bryan Cabezas who put it straight past him and into the net. 

That goal, Cabezas' second of the game, put Ecuador 3-2 ahead, but an injury-time equaliser from Luca de la Torre rescued a point - and saved Klinsmann's blushes!
