It’s been a long time since we’ve seen an own goal golazo on par with Festus Baise’s infamous reverse scorpion kick own goal from back in 2011. Now, however, we may some competition.
Ernesto Galan, a 26-year-old Spanish centre-half, scored an outstanding goal into his own net on Sunday to condemn his side Xerez to a 1-0 home defeat to Sabadell.
In the fifth minute of injury time at the end of the match, Xerez’s number four managed to get himself tangled up in a crazy move that ended with Galan lobbing his own keeper with a backheel lob that dropped into net just underneath the crossbar.
Watch Ernesto Galan’s sensational own goal golazo below.
