Santiago Vergini outlined himself as an early contender for own goal of the season when he put through his own net against Southampton, but does the Sunderland defender now have a competitor for the undesired accolade?

Step forward A.Player (we don’t know his name, unfortunately), who provided an untimely intervention for his side Garipa, based on the island of Crete, that resulted in an absolute shocker of an own goal.

Garipa were trailing Dorians 2-1 with around 15 minutes remaining and looked like they had been handed a reprieve when what appeared a certain goal somehow stayed out of the net.

A Dorians forward was able to get his foot onto the ball ahead of the opposition goalkeeper, and the ball rolled towards the bottom left corner. However, it proceeded to hit the post and then roll across the line.

But, much to his despair, the ball reached the opposite post, hit that and then rolled back out into open play.

This is where our Garipa defender comes in.

A simple clearance was required but, as you may have guessed, he only proceeded to slice the ball into his own net to extinguish any hopes his side may have had of getting back into the game.

Cue a moment of agony and yet another example of football schadenfreude.
