San Lorenzo's fine young goalkeeper Augustin Orion may have scuttled his side's Copa Libertadores hopes with the mother of all mistakes. I saw this live and have watched the video dozens of times, and it looks like he got undone by the spin he put on the ball with his first touch, which caused it to leap off his foot with his second. Or, perhaps I'm giving him too much credit, and it was simply a donkey touch. San Lorenzo now must overcome the away goal after a 1-1 draw, way up at altitude in Quito. If they don't, poor Augustin will be haunted by this for some time.
