Own goals in soccer, or any sport for that matter, are never a pretty thing.  But there is something especially ugly about Mike van der Hoorn‘s own goal during a Dutch Eredivisie match between FC Utrecht and AZ Alkmaar on Sunday.

I won’t even attempt to explain what van der Hoorn was trying to accomplish when the ball landed at his feet inside his own six-yard box.  All I can say is that it was a brutal sequence of events that led to AZ Alkmaar’s fourth goal during their 6-0 victory over FC Utrecht.

Worst own goal ever?  It has my vote.
