Its been a terrible Monday for Back Sung-Woo.
On the other side of the planet in the South Korean second division, FC Anyang are struggling at the foot of the table following a disastrous match away at Gwangju FC.
Anyang looked set to record just their second win of the season as they lead 2-1 in the final minute of injury time. Then, with 50 seconds left on the clock Gwangju worked the ball forward in a final attempt to forge a goalscoring opportunity.
The ball was fed out wide to Gwangju’s right winger who delivered a dangerous ball towards the six yard box. And then FC Anyang shot themselves in the foot.
Defender Kim Tae-Bong managed to intercept the cross to send the ball looping to his keeper, and all goalie Back Sung-Woo had to do was catch the ball to win the game. Amazingly, Sung-Woo screwed it up.
One further observation.
In the immediate aftermath of the clanger, Gwangju FC’s captain Kim Eun-Sun missed the target with a hilariously awful effort at goal.
