This Intentional Own Goal Is A Black Hole Of Fair Play And Bullshit

Okay, let's break down this footage of a recent Serie D match: A Dro player fair-plays the ball out of play after a Fersina dive, Fersina fair-plays it back to the Dro keeper, who somehow lets it slip through his legs for a goal. Then Fersina allows Dro to run down the field unimpeded to fair-play a make-up goal. Now, don't we feel all fuzzy inside?

Much of the response to the video has been supportive but nah, I can't clap with this. The Dro keeper made a basic error and should face the consequences. Where would that illustrious undefeated streak of the USMNT's been if we would have had pity for Marc-André ter Stegen? Does winning mean nothing anymore? U-S-A! U-S-A!
