Vincent Kompany, Manchester City’s usually excellent Belgian center back, scored this sublime own goal Saturday vs. Fulham. He probably couldn’t pull it off again if he tried. It tied the game at 2-2 with about 20 minutes to play at Craven Cottage.
Adding insult to injury? Kompany’s face looked like this after the own goal:

It didn’t take too much time for Manchester City to reestablish its lead, with Jesus Navas scoring to make it 3-2 with 12 minutes to play. The game finished 4-2. [GIF via r/soccer]
