Roma goalkeeper Mauro Goicoechea had an evening to forget last night (Friday), scoring a nightmare own goal in defeat to Cagliari.

The Giallorossi were making a good fist of their match at the Stadio Olimpico, with Francesco Totti scoring an equaliser for the hosts in the first-half.

However, the match turned on its head in the opening moments of the second period, with Goicoechea inexplicably throwing the ball into his own net from a routine cross from Danilo Avelar.

Roma were never able to recover, and eventually lost the Serie ‘A’ match 4-2.

And, if things weren’t bad enough, manager Zdenek Zeman has since been sacked after the latest embarrassing loss. They sit eighth in the table and haven’t won in 2013.

Another great find from 101 Great Goals, so let us know if you think this is the worst own goal you’ve ever seen…
