It’s been a heavy old day so far, what with the situation at the top of the England tree and everything, so here’s the perfect antidote – a truly pathetic own-goal to watch, savour and enjoy.
The guilty party is one Ashraf Soliman of Israeli club Maccabi Umm al-Fahm who, with his side 2-1 up in the 89th minute of an domestic cup tie against Hapoel Afula, panicked under pressure and duly farted a dreadful poke past his own keeper to level the score at two apiece…
The dozy tart’s night’s work wasn’t finished there though. After his ridiculous last-minute bollock-drop took the game to extra-time, Soliman went and scored the winner at the right end in the 97th minute!
It’s just as well he did really, as there was probably a distinct possibility that he may have woken up without a club this morning had he not redeemed himself for his earlier howler.
