Well, Cristiano Ronaldo happened.

Portuguese superstar Ronaldo put three past Spain at the World Cup back in 2018, with de Gea between the sticks.

While a player of Ronaldo's quality scoring a hat-trick past you is nothing to be ashamed off, it was the manner of the goals that worried fans.

His second was straight at the 29-year-old who spilled it into the net on the world stage.

De Gea's misery began against Chelsea when Olivier Giroud put Frank Lampard's side ahead just before half time.

His flick caught de Gea off guard which fizzed away from his grasp.

The second half then begun with Mason Mount's low drive spilling out of his hands to double Chelsea's lead.

De Gea kept United in the game with string of saves before Harry Maguire's own goal ended all hopes of a comeback.

Bruno Fernandes scored a consolation from the penalty spot five minutes from time.

Chelsea will now take on Arsenal in the final on August 1.
