You, sir, have been caught off your line.
More specifically, three goalkeepers were caught off their goal lines in this pair of videos.

We’ll build up to the worst incident, and start in Ireland, where Derry City goalkeeper Gerard Doherty was beaten by St. Patrick’s Athletic attacker Greg Bolger from close to midfield in an early season Airtricity League match in Ireland on Tuesday.
That’s a tough way to concede a goal, but nowhere near as rough as this video from Africa.
First, Zambian club Kalulushi Modern Stars (or K-Stars) looked to have sprung a late win when the Ferroviario keeper let a long free kick drift over his head, but their celebration(s) got a little overzealous and cost them an equalizer.
In other words, next time maybe the goalkeeper will hang out in his 18 and pump his fists like Gigi Buffon instead of traversing the pitch to join in on the celebration.
To be fair, not sure what his teammate was doing tossing the ball to the ref, nor what the official was doing allowing the quick restart without (seemingly) a whistle.
