Video: Palmeiras’ Marcio Araujo scores spectacular own goal
Top corner own goal
If it wasn’t for the fact that the player crossing the ball is wearing red and the player scoring the goal is in white you would have thought this was just a very good goal.
It comes from the match between Brazilian sides Palmeiras and Internacional. Marcio Araujo plays for Palmeiras, but he wasn’t going to let the simple fact stand in between him and a spectacular finish.
The ball is crossed in and Araujo is quickest to the ball. He fires a left-footed shot right into the top corner from about 14 yards out to score a quite magnificent own goal.
