By all accounts, Callum Irving is a pretty good soccer goalie. Currently, he is a keeper for the Ottawa Fury of the United Soccer League. In January, Irving earned his first cap for the Canada Men’s National Soccer Team in a friendly against Bermuda.
That’s what makes this whole thing so confusing. Well, it’s one of the reasons.
Born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, Irving went to Kentucky, where he played soccer for the Wildcats for four years.
In 2014, Irving was NSCAA Third Team All-America, NSCAA First Team All-Southeast Region as well as Conference USA Player of the Year, Defensive MVP, Golden Glove and First Team All-Conference USA.

The next season, Irving was named NSCAA First Team All-America, NSCAA First Team All-Southeast Region and Conference USA Player of the Year, Conference USA Defensive MVP, Golden Glove, First Team All-Conference USA and set a Wildcats record with 27 shutouts.
(See, we told you he was a pretty good soccer goalie.)
Hey, This Is Pretty Cool!
But even pretty good goalkeepers make mistakes.
It just so happens that Irving’s was a pretty silly one.
