Own Goals Don’t Get Much More Embarrassing, Painful Than This (Video)

Most own goals in soccer come with some level of embarrassment, but it doesn’t get much more embarrassing than this!

Hurrying to get the ball as far away from his goal as possible, this overzealous keeper apparently did not notice his teammate standing a few feet in front of him.  The end result would be a rather painful moment for the keeper and his teammates, but perhaps no one would suffer more than the defender, who was credited with the own goal, and likely sustained a concussion in the process.
