Napoli may have beaten Inter Milan in the Coppa Italia semi-final but David Ospina managed to let in a blunder goal and also picked up a booking ruling him out of the final.

Ok, ok, so that’s all a little harsh. According to reports, while Ospina made a massive mistake, he also kept Napoli in the game with ‘three sensational saves‘ during the match.

Still…

The former Arsenal keeper was renowned for his mistakes at Arsenal and he made another whopper against Inter Milan, allowing former Tottenham man Christian Eriksen to score directly from a corner.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, he also picked up a yellow card which means he will miss the showpiece final against Juventus on Wednesday night.

I mean, he’s a goalkeeper, how hard is it to not get booked when you know you will miss the next match and that game is a final?

Wojciech Szczesny is likely to line-up in goal for Napoli’s opponents on Wednesday night, a player Arsenal sold and replaced with Ospina the following summer.

Aaron Ramsey looks set to miss out as the midfielder seems to be injured again.
