Leon Goalkeeper William Yarbrough Makes Big Mistake with Free Kick vs. America

Leon's goalkeeper William Yarbrough will want to forget this gaffe in a hurry after conceding a goal from a harmless-looking free kick in his side's game against America in the Mexican league.

Oscar Martinez tried a hopeful free kick from long range that Yarbrough caught.

But as the keeper steadied himself, he took a step or two back and managed to bring the ball over the line as he went.

To add insult to injury, it appears to have been credited as his own goal rather than the striker's.
