GIF It: Rodolph Austin scores from his own half… but the full-time whistle had been blown (Leeds vs Tottenham)
[Update: We’d originally credited this to Davide Somma (on account of the commentary sounding like it’s Somma, the YouTube video claiming its Somma and even the minute-by-minute live text updates of national newspapers claiming it was Somma). After taking some of the comments left below on board, it looks like it’s actually Rodolph Austin.]
Poor old, Rodolph Austin.
It’s not too often you get the chance to score from your own half. But with Spurs keeper Brad Friedel striving to get his shiny noggin on the ball in Leeds’ penalty area in search of a last-gasp equaliser, the opportunity presented itself rather neatly to Austin.
Unfortunately the full-time whistle had blown as soon as the ball was cleared from the Leeds box.
Not that Somma or the Elland Road crowd were aware of that! Shades of Peter Odemwingie.
Here’s the video (until the internet police snaffle it up).
