Watch A Soccer Player Score Directly From A Corner Kick…Twice! (Video)

paul owens corner kick goalThere is no arguing the fact that Roberto Carlos’ “improbable goal” during a Copa del Rey match in 1998 will forever be one off the most unlikely things you will ever see take place on a football pitch.  However, I can’t help but think that Paul Owens‘ performance during a Northern Ireland Premiership game over the weekend will rank him a close second on such a list.

So what did Owens do to deserve such accolades?  The Coleraine player scored a goal directly from a free kick, not once, but twice!

You’d think the Glenavon keeper would have been ready the second time he saw Owens set up for a corner kick, but that clearly wasn’t the case.  However, he would get some redemption, as he prevented Owens from recording the hat-trick by punching his third corner kick attempt over the crossbar.

You can check out all of the “improbable” action in the video below.
