Backpass into the net

The best/worst own goal of the weekend was scored by Swansea’s Ashley Williams, albeit he was aided and abetted by his goalkeeper Dorus de Vries.

The video shows that de Vries and more than one Swansea defender were playing it a bit risky around their own penalty area. But they decided they would rather learn the hard way.

Just when it looked like they might have the situation under control, Williams decided to pass the ball towards the near side of his goal. Meanwhile, de Vries took the opportunity to run away past the far post.

Cue excruciating viewing for Swansea fans.
