Own goals in football are almost always a source of humour, as a funny same side goal was scored during the match between Chilean clubs C.D. Arturo Fernández Vial and Deportes Recoleta, in the Segunda División Profesional de Chile, the third division of Chilean football last Sunday.
The match was played at Estadio Ester Roa, the home ground for C.D. Arturo in the city of Concepción. By the 25th minute, the own goal came from the feet of C.D. Arturo forward Bibencio Servín. Watch the hilarious buildup to the goal below, courtesy to All Football-
The C.D. Arturo defenders were keeping the possession in their own half, but Recoleta forwards were keeping the pressure. One long back pass from a home team midfielder caused Arturo goalkeeper Pablo Soto to rush out to clear it, as Recoleta forward Diego Cuéllar was rushing on the ball.
However, Soto’s clear went to a Recoleta player, and a a through ball was targeted at Cuéllar. Soto managed to intercept, but couldn’t keep his grab on the ball. Servín got the ball beside him, and apparently his intention was to clear the ball away, but the effective chip went into the Arturo net, putting the away team ahead.
The match ended with Recoleta winning 3-1, as their forwards Cuéllar and Leonardo Andrés Uribe Sepúlveda each got one goal to mtheir name in the second half. Arturo were only satisfied with one goal from Milton Alegre.
