Soccer player hits brilliant shot to score impressive own goal7/16/2012
Now this is one great-looking goal, except for the fact that it was the wrong guy scoring for the wrong team. The wrong guy is Evgen Eliseev from Goverla in the Ukraine Premier League, and in trying to stop an attack he sends the ball back to his own goalkeeper with power and accuracy that Beckham would envy. The goalie, rather than get called for handling a backpass, tries a header that only helps the ball into the net. He probably should have risked the free-kick penalty anyway, but as the coach's gesturing suggests, there was plenty of boneheadedness to go around.
Should the goalie have used his hands to stop the ball?
