Poor sod: goalkeeper kicks ball off striker’s face and into his own net

The headline pretty much sums this one up. It is what it is, but for any goalkeeper out there they’d feel a great deal of sympathy for Podbeskidzie Bielsko-Biala’s Richard Zajac. As howlers go, this is possibly one of the worst you’ll see all campaign.

Zajac was caught dithering on the ball in Podbeskidzie Bielsko-Biala’s opening game of the season against Lechia Gdansk, allowing the opposition striker to close him down. In his state of panic, Zajac then kicked the ball into the on-rushing player’s face and into his own net. It proved to be the decisive goal as Lechia won the game 1-0. Ouch.

Who’d be a goalkeeper, eh?
