Is this the greatest own goal ever scored?

We’ve all seen some absolute corking own goals but this one probably takes the biscuit.

Jordan side Al Faisaly couldn’t buy a win in the last six games and they headed into the Ammam derby desperate to take some points from local rivals Al-Wehdat.

Unfortunately Al Faisaly went behind to an early goal but things were to get significantly worse when the home side’s goalkeeper scored one of the most incredible own goals you’re likely to see this year.

One of the Al-Wehdat players fired a tame shot at the Al Faisaly ‘keeper Mohammad Shatnawi, who fumbled the shot.

Worse was to follow when he lopped the ball up in the air and managed to score a bicycle kick into his own net.

The match finished 3-0 to Al-Wehdat
