It was just about the only thing Jordan Pickford got wrong all game.
Fellow former Three Lions star Alan Shearer simply said: "Yesssssssss boys yeeesss yes yes #RUSSIA_2018 @England". "I've got that power and agility to get around the goal".
With only three previous global caps to his credit, Pickford was a bit of a surprise choice for the starting XI berth in the greatest show on earth, given England's history of opting for the conventional choice in goalkeeping, in this case Joe Hart being the most obvious choice.
"I can say it is the saddest moment of my career, the pain is great because we knew we could get there, we know we had a chance to go far, to make history".
"It was a different type of game today but we don't want to be going into a penalty shoot-outs every game", he said.
"It's coming home, isn't it?"

After the match, Colombia captain Radamel Falcao hit out at the officiating, telling reporters: "I found it peculiar that they put an American referee in this instance... to tell you the truth, the process leaves a lot of doubts".
A Brazil v England final is also on the mind of punters and is the most likely showdown to happen in the Luzhniki on July 14th at 11/2.
"People were having a go about how tall he was".
And just how the team managed to conquer Colombia in the round of 16 match - a penalty shootout - was enough to cause celebration for some with the curse finally broken.
THIS year's World Cup in Russian Federation is being hailed as one of the best ever - and football-mad Clinton FC goalkeeper Dan White wouldn't disagree.
Their luck changed however after a hard-fought game against Colombia.
Yes, on paper, this looks like a very winnable tie, but as we know, matches at this stage aren't won on paper and England fans just have to look to the Three Lions' record against Sweden for evidence of that.
"This situation was undermining us", said Falcao.
