There are some moments in football that leave you stunned, and this is one of those. Only a few seconds' delay in your mind will likely be followed by a laugh.
Is this the greatest own goal ever? Well, that's pretty hard to say, considering there have been some true wonder strikes over the years. Ahem, Jamie Pollock!
But this was an absolute scorcher from Milan Gajic, and while playing at a pretty decent level, too.
The midfielder plays for Young Boys in the Swiss Super League, a side used to playing in top European competition.
Sadly for Gajic, however, the opening day of the new season did not start well as he put rivals St Gallen 2-1 up with this thunderbolt into the top corner.
It was surely the best goal that he has ever scored with the ball fizzing past his own goalkeeper, but there lies the problem. Just look at his manager's face!
Young Boys went on to equalise late on and spare Gajic's blushes. At least until this video went viral...
