Valeri Aleksanyan Scores Embarrassing Own Goal Against Ireland (video)
Ah, good old soccer. One of the last times I posted about soccer, I think enraged half of the Internet. Oh well, I’m back again with another funny video. Just before half in the match between Armenia and Ireland, Ireland was on the attack. Kevin Doyle had a chance in front of the net, but he whiffed on it. Luckily for him, his teammate was right there to score the go-ahead goal….wait, that guy in red doesn’t play for Ireland.
Poor Valeri Aleksanyan. He had a chance to clear the ball out, but instead he smoked it into the back of the net. The Irish aren’t even sure what happened and Aleksanyan looks like he’s about to throw up.
Soccer is a sport of redemption, so maybe Alkesanyan can rebound in an upcoming match. Otherwise, the shame of this own goal in a 2-1 loss will haunt him for a long time.
