Bizarre Own Goal Gifts Northern Ireland Half-Time Lead

Northern Ireland lead Luxembourg 1-0 at half-time in their international friendly thanks to one of the most bizarre own goals you are likely to see.

The two sides clash this evening in Windsor Park with the Belfast crowd expecting a win against the European minnows.

Michael O’Neill’s side took in a slender 1-0 lead at the break thanks to a crazy own goal from Kevin Malget.

Malget looked to clear his lines as the ball bounced around the area following a Northern Ireland corner but Malget could only manage to turn it into his own goal with a clearing header.

He won’t want to see this one again.
