Fernando won't forget this shocking error any time soon.

With five minutes to go until half time in tonight's Champions League quarter-final first leg between PSG and Man City, the visitors held a slender 1-0 lead after a Kevin de Bruyne goal. City keeper Joe Hart then played a short kick out to Brazilian Fernando, who dithered on the ball before inexplicably cannoning it off the on-rushing Zlatan and into his own net.

The gift of a goal was a hammer blow for City, who had led despite allowing PSG a host of good chances. Zlatan was only too happy to profit from the blunder after a terrible first half that saw him miss a penalty and squander a 1 v 1.

Fernando has often been held up as one of Manchester City's big-money signings who regularly underperforms and tonight's error reinforces that view.

Nobody had much sympathy for Fernando after his brainfart either, even as his side recovered to earn a crucial 2-2 draw in Paris.
