Video: Is this the worst own goal of the season?

If sporting epicaricacy is something you enjoy, then deriving pleasure from the misfortune of poor Mike van der Hoorn will hardly prove a particularly tricky task.

Van der Hoorn has guaranteed himself a place on blooper reels for years to come, following one of the most ridiculous own goals you are ever likely to witness at the top level.

After a rather ignominious piece of defending from a FC Utrecht teammate results in the ball landing at the feet of the Dutch under-21 centre-back, Van der Hoorn inexplicably bundles it into his own net.
