Video: Romanian goalkeeper scores ridiculous own-goal

Published 8 Comments

I'm sorry, but this is getting silly now.

We've seen some pretty terrible own goals in our time (mostly because they were scored during our doomed assault on the local six-a-side league title) but we can proudly say we've never scored one quite this bad. Just.

Romanian keeper Radu Mitu collects comfortably after a tame shot and looks to launch his side on their way with a swift counter-attack.

But rule one on the the first page of 'How to counter-attack' quite clearly states that mid-way through your throw, do not have second thoughts and try and stop yourself. Because this will happen. No wonder he is in tears afterwards.
