Video of the week: Bayern Munich player Niklas Süle produces ridiculous own goal

Bayern Munich has sealed the title in the German Bundesliga for the approximately 643th time in a row. After a 4:1 away win in the Bavarian derby against Augsburg, Bayern secured their 28th championship in early April already. One has to admit: their dominance in their own country’s football is thoroughly impressive.

But the football universe is used to see Bayern celebrate titles way before the season ends. So, what actually stays in mind from last weekend’s game in Augsburg is the hilarious own goal produced by Bayern’s young defender Niklas Süle to give Augsburg an early 1:0 lead.

It was an own goal that actually makes you feel sorry for the 22-year old, who now actually has become the youngest Bundesliga player to ever have scored three own goals with 22 years, 7 months and 6 days.

Not only this inglorious record should awake our pity for Süle, but, even more, the fact that the own goal was absolutely not his fault after all. And that’s what makes this goal so brilliantly hilarious, too.

This slapstick-goal started out with his teammate, Jerome Boateng, losing the ball due to a horrific stoppage error, resulting in an Augsburg attacker being able to have a one on one with Bayern’s keeper Ulreich, who then was actually able to clear the ball away. However, as you’ll probably be able to imagine by now, the ball goes straight into Süle’s face and from there it finds the back of the net. Ouch.

See for yourself: Süle’s own goal against Augsburg (from 01:35 onwards)

At least he’ll have the silverware soon to chill his face a bit after that hit.

Say goodbye to the Wednesday Shortlist – and welcome the video of the week! (Week 1: Hilarious defender fail from England)

Hi everyone! I hope you’re doing amazing. Spring is finally coming and that makes it necessary to do some proper spring cleaning. Also on this blog. I have recieved some criticism concerning the Wednesday Shortlists and the way there was one every week.

Now I’ve decided that quality should come before quantity. Hence, the Wednesday Shortlist will be put aside, however I will from time to time post some entertaining listicles with some proper banter in it.

But since I want to stay in touch with all of you at least once every week, I’ve decided to introduce a new category: The Video of the Week.

In this category I will introduce to you, probably every Wednesday again, the most hillarious sports video that crossed my path in the last week. And when does this new category start? Today!

Video of the week: Woking FC defender produces hilarious fail that makes his team lose the game in 94th minute

The first video of the week comes right from the motherland of football. And it represents the absolute beauty of lower league football. Woking FC was playing Macclesfield Town at home in England’s National League that is the 5th tier of the coutry. Everyone was expecting a 2:2-draw as we were deep in stoppage time alread. But then Joey Jones, a Woking defender, produced the fail of the season and let the visitors sneak away a 2:3-victory when he turned away from a ball that he believed to go in but that was stuck in the mud actually, allowing the opposition to score the late winner from a ball that he could easily havecleared away.

Remember what every youth coach used to tell you in your early years of playing football? „Focus your eyes on the ball!“ Well, Joey Jones probably won’t forget that anytime soon again.

Watch for yourself:

Here’s another view of the bizarre goal:
