Pepe Reina suffered a nightmare while playing for Spain in a friendly against Argentina in Buenos Aires.
The Liverpool stopper suffered 3 goals in a matter of 24 minutes with Lionel Messi opening the score in the 10th minute with a cheeky chip. Four minutes later Higuain went round Reina and was able to make it 2-0 from a tight angle. However Reina’s big howler came in the 24th minute when he slipped and Carlos Tevez was quick to capitalise and net home the third goal.
Pepe was substituted in the 2nd half, Fernando Llorente pulled one back in 84th minute for Spain however Sergio Aguero made it 4-1 in the 90th making it Spain’s biggest loss since August 2000
Pepe got the nod to start ahead of Iker Castillas for the World Champions and considering the backlash from the Spanish Press he might not play for Spain again. In Pepe’s defence the pitch was in horrible shape and the long flight to Buenos Aires was probably a factor too.
Below are the 3 goals that Pepe suffered.
Chin up mate.
