Martin Skrtel Scores One of the Worst Own Goals You’ll Ever See [VIDEO]

Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel scored an unbelievably awful own goal while playing for Slovakia against Greece in today’s World Cup qualifier.

To be fair, it really wasn’t Skrtel’s fault, but his name will go on the scoresheet as the player who scored the OG. Skrtel made a harmless pass back to Slovakia goalkeeper (and former Everton back-up goalkeeper) Jan Mucha. However, Mucha was unable to control the back pass, and the ball bobbled under his feet and into the back of the net.

The goal gave Greece a 1-0 lead going into half-time.

Slovakia are already out of the running to qualify for World Cup 2014, but the goal by Skrtel has gifted Greece a chance of possibly reaching the playoffs instead of Bosnia Herzegovina.

The goal reminds me of the Peter Enckelman own goal by Aston Villa against Birmingham City, where Olof Mellberg’s throw-in caught Enckelman off guard in front of his goal.
