Here Is An Own Goal That Was Scored With Authority (Video)

This play still has me scratching my head.  And it appears as though there were a few players on the pitch from both teams who were left doing the same.

What did this player think would happen when he kicked the ball towards his own goal?  Was he really surprised to see it end up in the back of the net?

After so many years of playing soccer, one would think that the consequences of kicking your leg at the ball would become well known at this point.  I guess this player is just finding that out now.

You know it is bad when the opposing team wont even celebrate the goal.  Check it out.
