CLEAR HISTORY: Real Sociedad Right Back Turns Routine Clearance Into America’s Funniest Home Video

Own goals are, by definition, humiliating, because they’re obviously the literal opposite of what a defensive plays intends to happen. Sometimes they’re unavoidable. Sometimes they’re careless mistakes. But never are they this pathetic. Real Sociedad RB Joseba Zaldua tries clearing a Cesc Fabregas (FCB) deflection off the post, by aimlessly booting the ball in the direction of the keeper, as opposed to, say, over the end line, or AWAY FROM THE GOAL. The result is cringeworthy — especially if you play FIFA (where stuff like this is unfortunately all too common).
