Goalkeeper Scores Incredible Own Goal

GoalieHERO.jpg

Who would be a goalkeeper? You never get the glory, only the blame. And you also have to deal with things like this.

The hapless keeper for Italian Serie D side Delta Porto Tolle saw his clearance get picked up by a freak gust of wind, returning from whence it came, with disastrous consequences.

We remember this happening frequently in our youth when using an airflow ball in the 90s (when it was essentially impossible to score when playing with the wind against you), but never with a real one. We genuinely know how he feels.

What's additionally brilliant about this clip is how much the opposition striker celebrates when it had literally nothing to do with him. Fantastic.
