Incredible Own Goal! E. Eliseev (Goverla) v Che...
Saturday, July 14th, 2012 The Ukrainian Premier League kicked off it's 2012/13 season this weekend, and Saturday produced one of the all-time great own goals... ever.
Goverla, having been promoted last season, started their new campaign at Chernomorets, but the first half was a complete catastrophe for the visitors as they fell three goals behind.
Making matters worse for Goverla, was the fact that Chernomorets' second goal came from an amazing own goal from centre-half Evgen Eliseev.
Attempting to cut out a Chernomorets attack 30-yards from goal, the left-footed defender swiped the ball towards his own net. With his keeper unable to handle the ball because of the back-pass, the ball and incredibly flew high into the goalmouth.
