This wind-assisted own goal has to be seen to be believed (Video)

Some will say he makes a mess of it, but spare a thought for the goalkeeper, here.

With one of his defenders launching the ball into the opponent’s half, how is he to know that he’ll be picking the ball out of his net within a couple of seconds?

Taking place in a non-league fixture between Thurrock FC and Romford, the wind somehow gets hold of the ball and sends it backwards, beating the goalkeeper after taking a bounce.

The wind-assisted own-goal, credited to Thurrock FC’s Kamarl Duncan, the defender that attempts the clearance, is one of the most ridiculous ever seen.

We can’t believe the forward had the nerve to celebrate.
