Video: Josh Rose's own goal shocker

Topics

Central Coast defender Josh Rose certainly won’t remember Tuesday night’s Asian Champions League loss to Guangzhou R&F very fondly after scoring one of the most embarrassing own goals seen in any competition this season.

Already trailing 2-0 in the 89th minute, experienced defender Rose was under stacks of pressure when he attempted to pass the ball back to goalkeeper Liam Reddy.

Unfortunately Rose hadn’t seen the ‘keeper come off his line and the defender’s 40m backpass ended up in the back of the net, much to Guangzhou’s delight.

The loss saw the Mariners miss out on qualifying for the Asian Champions League after being involved in the tournament for the last three seasons.
