Axel Disasi scores ridiculous own goal in FA Cup quarter final

Axel Disasi

So bad it’s almost impressive

Axel Disasi scored what can only be described as the own goal of the season in Chelsea’s FA Cup quarter final against Leicester City.

Chelsea were cruising at the time and leading 2-0 thanks to first half goals from Marc Cucurella and Cole Palmer.

The Blues could’ve had a third but Raheem Sterling failed to score from the penalty spot and had his effort saved by Jakub Stolarczyk.

Leicester had tried to play on the front foot but were regularly caught out on the break by the speed in Chelsea’s attack and the lack of the aforementioned in Leicester’s defence.

But the Foxes were given an absolute lifeline when Disasi scored an absolute worldie. It just happened to be in the wrong net.

Closed down by Patson Daka, the defender turned to try and play the ball back to Robert Sanchez but rather than find the ‘keeper’s feet, it instead lofted over his head and into the back of the goal to bring the Championship side right back into this.

Not the sort of goal Disasi was hoping to score today.

To make matters worse, Leicester then equalised shortly after via a wonder strike from Stephy Mavididi.
