Defender scores one of the strangest own goals ever

It's the moment every defender dreads.

A speculative cross comes flying in to the box and in their attempts to clear the danger the ball rolls in to their own net.

Most own goals come as the result of a freak incident with team mates and fans accepting that the player was just unfortunate.

But the same can not be said of Unión Comercio defender Renzo Reaños, who scored one of the most ridiculous own goals ever witnessed on a football pitch.

After a cross found Universitario striker Carlos Olascuaga in the box Joaquín Lencinas cynically brought him down - a clear penalty.

But just before the referee pointed to the spot, Reaños somehow managed to hammer the ball in to his own net and the referee awarded the goal instead.

To make matters worse, the own goal turned out to be the only in the match as Unión Comercio lost 1-0 in the Peruvian Premier Division.

Renos tweeted: “I feel very bad. It was my fault we lost today. I want to apologise to my team mates and to all the people of Unión Comercio.”
