Video: The most embarrassing own goal ever scored?
Peruvian footballer Renzo Reaños blasted the ball into his own net after giving away a penalty...only the referee hadn't given it yet
Monday 19 August 2013
Is there a worst feeling than giving away a penalty? Well, Peruvian footballer Renzo Reaños certainly found out the hard way.
The Unión Comercio player thought he had brought down the Universitario striker, with the referee about to award a penalty for the foul in their Peruvian Primera Division clash.
In frustration, Reaños blasts the ball beyond his own goalkeeper and into the goal, only he had forgotten about the advantage rule.
And when the referee turned back towards the centre-circle having given the goal, the rest of the Unión Comercio players looked bemused as to why their team-mate had just scored a horrendous own goal.
We don’t mind though, as it gave us a hilarious clip to watch this morning!
Diving in at the deep end is no excuse for shirking the style stakes
