Own goals are one of the most embarrassing things in sports. A lack of communication, a deflection — these things happen, but this Estonian team managed to score on themselves in just 14 seconds, without their opponents ever touching the ball.

Paide Linnameeskond were playing Levadia Tallinn over the weekend when this magical moment occurred. This is the part of the game where you’re just trying to get setting, get everyone a touch, and ease into things — and then they kick it backwards, out of the reach of the keeper.

It would be worse if Paide Linnameeskond tied the game or lost close, but they ended up getting walloped 8-0. So I guess that’s a silver lining?
