Keeper should’ve just caught it.
wtf

Probably would’ve been the best choice, indirect free kick being the far lesser threat. Horrible pass to him tho.

It's probably instinctual to him to never handle a backpass. Keepers presumably have that drilled in to them regularly.

It most likely took him totally off guard as well, meaning he just went with his instincts not to handle it.

He had a good game in general though, and made a cracking save in the second half.

Surely it would be a red? Denial of a clear goalscoring opportunity without any legal attempt at actually playing the ball.

Aye. It's easy to say in hindsight to just catch it, but it goes against his natural instinct, can't attach much blame but probably a slight learning point if he faces such a scenario again.

Nope
