Roda JC ‘keeper Filip Kurto notched a fantastically unlucky own-goal against Utrecht in the Eredivisie on Saturday, unwittingly nodding in at his own back post after Utrecht midfielder Jens Toornstra’s long, looping ball into the box beat absolutely everybody – well, nearly everybody…

Some days you just gotta wonder why you got out of bed in the first place. For the record, the game ended 3-3, with Toornstra scoring again in the 87th minute to level it all up.
