In any team sport, there are a few understandable screw-ups. Missing a pass, failing to catch a rebound—they might suck, but there’s nothing as horrible as a goalie accidentally scoring for the other team.

Minnesota United player Sammy Ndjock knows that pain. While playing against Bournemouth on Wednesday night, Ndjock attempted to toss the soccer ball away from his post and failed so, so miserably—with his team already down a point, no less.
