You’ve probably seen your fair share of impressive soccer goal videos, but now it’s time to see one that’s just embarrassing.

During this soccer match in Cyprus, two defenders screwed up in truly epic style. As both of them reached out to stop the ball, they wound up crashing into each other and scoring a two-man own goal.

This fumble is probably going to haunt them for the rest of their careers.

The next time you screw up at work, think of this video. At least your mistakes aren’t broadcast live to the world and witnessed firsthand by a stadium’s worth of fans.
