Even great goalkeepers commit blunders' - Ojo backs Arsenal's Okonkwo after Hibernian howler

The goalkeeper's blunder cost the Gunners against the Hibs, but the ex-Flying Eagles star was quick to support the England youth international

Former Nigeria U20 goalkeeper Olorunleke Ojo leapt to the defence of Arthur Okonkwo following his howler in Arsenal's 2-1 loss to Hibernian on Tuesday.

A mistake from the English shot-stopper of Nigerian descent on his debut ensured the Gunners ended up on the losing side in the pre-season friendly played at Easter Road. 

The Scottish side took a 21st-minute lead after Okonkwo failed to deal with a back pass from Cedric Soares. Profiting from that, Martin Boyle had the simple task of putting the ball into an empty net.
