I am wary of lapsing into superlatives over every old highlight, but with that qualifier out of the way, this might be the dumbest own goal I have ever seen.

Minnesota United FC—who play in the second-division NASL and will join MLS next season—lost this one 4-0 to Bournemouth. The Cherries are enjoying their preseason tour, and were treated to some home cooking by keeper Sammy Ndjock. Their Twitter account recapped the doomed throw as an “awkward moment,” which sounds about right.

Hopefully Ndjock can learn to throw balls into his own net at an MLS level by next year.
