Football team concedes inexplicable own goal from kick-off

 

What's better than scoring a goal 15 seconds into a match? Not even having to touch the ball to do so.

That's exactly what happened to Estonian team Levadia Tallinn on Thursday after opponents Paide Linnameeskond gifted them an embarrassing lead.

Paide kicked off and proceeded to work the ball around their own half before an ill-advised back-pass found the goalkeeper scrambling to save the ball.

However his efforts were in vain as the ball trickled over the line for an inexplicable own goal just 15 seconds in.

And the worst part? Levadia didn't even have to touch the ball to take the lead.

The hilarious mishap set the tone for the rest of the match as Levadia went on to win 3-1.

Is it the worst own goal in recent memory?
