Pepe Reina established himself once again as the official cheerleader of Spain during the 2010 World Cup but his form in the opening weeks of the 2010-11 season suggests all the time on the Furia Roja bench has left him a little rusty.
The Spanish number two was one of the bright spots during Liverpool's troubled campaign in 2009-10, Reina has established himself as one of the top keepers in the Premier League and only Iker Casillas, arguably the top custodian in world football, kept him from being number one for his national team.
So good has he been at Liverpool that the only mistake that comes to mind during his time at Anfield was the high-profile Merseyside derby error against Everton in 2006. Reina has been so impressive that the gossip columns suggested Arsenal would pay £23 million for his services, a huge fee for a goalkeeper, earlier this summer.
Perhaps the transfer talk has gone to his head as Reina has had a horrific few weeks. First up there was the own goal that allowed Arsenal to snatch a point at Anfield on the opening Sunday of the Premier League season.
And last night Reina produced another horror show to allow Carlos Tevez to score Argentina's third goal in a 4-1 win over the world champions.
After the game Reina said: "When you slip up you feel a tremendous responsibility and weight on your shoulders. But it was an unfortunate incident, a slip. Still, I must accept the error, you need to see it as an accident and move forward. You need to take advantage of the time the coach gives you and here that hasn't been the case."
It is unlikely that Roy Hodgson is overly concerned, but new Liverpool signing Brad Jones may now be more likely to achieve some playing time at Anfield.

Once the FAIL compilations start being wheeled out you know things are bad.
