Hong Kong Gives Us The Best Own-Goal You Will Ever Witenss (Video)
Had Nigerian defender Festus Baise been a member of Hong Kong club team Citizen AA, this could have been one of the greatest soccer goals of the year. But because he plays for Sun Hei SC, this could end up being one of the best own-goals…ever!
Being a defender, Festus Baise probably doesn’t get to attempt many scorpion kicks, but he figured he would give one a shot as he attempted to clear a cross from a member of the opposition. Unfortunately for him, his attempted clear would land in the back of his own net, rather than safely out of bounds.
In addition to being awfully embarrassing, the own-goal would also be quite costly, as Sun Hei SC was defeated by a score of 3-2.
Here is a look at what may very well be the most skillful own-goal ever scored.
