Chinese U20 outfit score calamitous team own-goal

Usually an own-goal comes about through one quick moment of ill-fortune.

A defender deflecting a flashed cross into his own net. A poorly executed swipe that slices beyond the grasp of a goalkeeper. These are the type of own-gaols we are used to seeing.

So it came as something of a shock to see an own goal so contrived it took three people to contribute towards the ball rolling into the back of the net.

In the Chinese U-20 Semi-Final National Game between Xinjiang and Liaoning, a defender from the home side bungles his attempted clearance, ballooning the ball into the air.

"Fear not", he must've thought, "my team-mate will clear his lines with his attempt."

Not to be outdone, the second defender in the clip splices his clearance towards his goalkeeper, who attempts to control the ball, but lets it roll gently into the net.

What a farce.
