A glorious own goal golazo: Carlos Castro (Deportivo Cuenca) v Macara

This incredible own goal comes from Ecudaror’s Primera A on Wednesday night in a match Macara went on to win 2-0.

After conceding from a corner just two minutes earlier, the defence clearly weren’t all too comfortable with defending another one. The corner was swung over to the far post where Deportivo defender Carlos Castro looked to make a simple clearance.

Under zero pressure and with time to set himself, Castro volleyed the ball emphatically into the top corner of his own goal. The 34 year old defender held his head in his hands after consigning his team to defeat.

Watch the unfortunate piece of defending below.
