The season has already served up some crazy own goals, but the effort of Ecuador defender Juan Carlos Paredes is up there with the worst of them.
Chile took a 1-0 lead on Friday night when they were gifted a goal from a superb volley in the 25th minute.
Chile broke down the right hand side through their number four Isla. He swung a dangerous delivery into the box, it was met with full force by Juan Carlos Paredes. The only problem was the ball rocketed off his foot and into the net.
Fortunately for Paredes his og was ultimately a moot point as Ecuador went on the win the match 3-1.
