Anthony Martial scored one of the greatest FIFA own goals we've ever seen

'It doesn't matter how you score them, they all count' - it's the mantra of any potent striker worth their salt.

Whether you bang them in from 40 yards or they dribble in via a deflection off your arse, a goal's a goal.

There is, however, one caveat - when you stick the ball in your own net.

While no player surely wants to see the letters OG next to their name, if we'd have scored the goal that Anthony Martial scored on FIFA 17 in either end, we'd be secretly a little bit chuffed.

It was an absolute cracker to be fair. The Manchester United striker can be seen hovering around the edge of his own box, unmarked (obviously, with it being his own box and all).

Then when the opposition corner came swinging in, he inexplicably launches himself at the ball and thunders a bullet header into the top corner.

The goal was shared on Reddit and users were pretty impressed with the hapless but impressive finish in his own net.
