Embarrassing Fall Leads To Breakaway Soccer Goal (Video)

Naoaki Aoyama fallThe Japanese have never been known for their excellence on the soccer pitch, and this video pretty much sums up why.

It comes from a J-League Cup match between Yokohama F. Marinos and Consadole Sapporo, as Yokohama defender Naoaki Aoyama took a spill while running backwards with the ball at his feet.  That allowed Sapporo striker Hideo Oshima to walk in alone on the Yokohama goaltender and easily slide the ball into the corner of the net.  Sapporo would go on to win the game by a score of 2-1, making this embarrassing display that much more painful for Aoyama, his teammates and the Yokohama fans to bear.

You can watch the embarrassment unfold in the video below.
