Video: Corey Brown Scores a Back-Heel Own Goal

BR-UK StaffAnalyst IIIJanuary 17, 2014

Think on the bright side, Corey Brown: Many have accomplished the tricky back-heel goal. Few have accomplished the even trickier back-heel own goal. 

But that's exactly what Brown accomplished during Australia's 4-0 defeat to Japan during the AFC U-22 Championships. 

It's hard to tell what he was trying to do while trying to clear Japan's cross. The result would have been a thing of beauty celebrated across the Internet had it been for Australia rather than against it. Instead, he finds himself in dubious, rare territory. 

On the bright side, his Australian side still advanced in spite of his debacle in front of the net and his team's defeat.
