Jerome Boateng’s terrible handball
Euro 2016 has been the best of times, and the worst of times for German defender Jerome Boateng.
Back during the group phase, the Bayern Munich defender wowed everyone with an insane goalline clearance against Ukraine.
On that occasion Boateng’s positional sense and defensive nous was turned up to the max.
Against Italy, however, in the quarterfinal at Euro 2016, Boateng’s defending was well below par as he gifted the Azzurri a vital penalty.
After Mesut Ozil had fired Die Mannschaft in front, Boateng’s handball allowed Italy to level through Leonardo Bonucci.
Boateng memes win the internet
It took the internet minutes to make fun of Boateng for his awful handball.
The defender’s pose – with his back leg out in the air, and his hands up in the air – gave the meme-makers plenty of food for fun.
The best Jerome Boateng jokes during the Germany v Italy game are below.
