Enaut Zubikarai, the goalkeeper for Real Sociedad, had a very evening earlier this month. Playing in the Copa del Rey’s round of 16, Zubikarai allowed Mallorca to score six goals in the first 60 minutes, and Real Sociedad lost, 6-1.

Swansea’s Ashley Williams wishes he could have this pass-back back.
