Football's comedy goals

cup-final-pic.jpg

It’s a feeling most of us will mercifully never experience, a gaffe so shocking, so inept, so comical that it beggars belief. That is how Arsenal duo Laurel and Hardy, oops, sorry Wojciech Szczesny and defender Laurent Koscielny must have felt yesterday, when their mix-up gifted Birmingham City the first silverware of the season.

However, like most things in life, there is always someone worse off than you. Check this following compilation of blooper goals for proof. Scant consolation for Szczesny and Koscielny (come to think of it, they do sound like a comedy double team), but consolation nonetheless.
