VIDEO: Goalkeeper scores own goal as teammate hugs ball out of his hands

Gaziantep Büyükşehir Belediyespor reserves pair were celebrating a penalty save.


See the Gaziantep Büyükşehir Belediyespor reserve team score an own goal as one of the Turkish side’s defenders knocks the ball from his goalkeeper’s hands while hugging him in celebration of a prior penalty save.

Unable to hide his delight with his teammate, the number four rushes into the goalie’s arms, forcing the ball to slip from his grasp and trickle over the line despite their best efforts to stop it.

Seen during a clash in the U21 Ligi reserve league for the top teams in the country, the dismayed look of the pair and their colleagues are plain to see in the viral clip.
