Goalkeeper Scores Bizarre Non-Own Goal off Opponent's Face

Sean SwabyUK Staff WriterJuly 27, 2014

Goalkeeper Richard Zajac will not want to watch this goal again. No, he won't. 

Zajac's blunder won't go down as an own goal. In fact, it will be credited to an onrushing player's face. 

Zajac incredibly took his sweet time clearing his lines—so long that by the time he went for the clearance, it smashed into his opponent's head and into his own goal. 

It gave Lechia Gdansk a 1-0 lead over Podbeskidzie Bielsko-Biala in Poland.
