A week is a long time in football.

Just ask goalkeeper Maghnus Breathnach who, seven days after being the penalty shootout hero for Galway in their Connacht FBD League semi-final victory over Mayo, made a costly mistake in An Spideal's All-Ireland club IFC semi-final defeat to Naomh Eanna in Navan yesterday.

Breathnach was playing fly 'keeper in the first half when he lost the ball near the 45-metre line and Naomh Eanna's Joe Maskey took full advantage by sending a soaring shot to the empty net.

After the game, Breathnach admitted in a tweet that he was devastated over his mistake but said he won't allow the criticism to get to him.
