Cruzeiro defender Dede had a game to forget when his side went to play Flamengo recently.
After a tight quarter of an hour, the balance swung in the home team’s favour when Dede scored a completely avoidable own goal.
A potentially dangerous cross was swung in from the right but Cruzerio goalkeeper Fabio had it covered and was about to catch it until Dede flew across him, sending the ball flying into the roof of the net. A complete lack of communication between teammates.
There was no recovering from that blow for Cruzeiro as Flamengo went on to win 3-0.
