Watch: Brentford B score incredible own goal against Manchester United's U23s

This is brutal.

The own goal is bad enough, of course - it's the classic overhit backpass, mixed with the goalkeeper's strange "should I, shouldn't I" attempt to stop the ball with his hand and then a mad, futile dash back towards his own goal.

However, it's worse when you know that this happened within three minutes of the game starting and that the poor goalkeeper was actually a trialist. He won't be thanking Jaakko Oksanen after this...

Still, all's well that ended well: Brentford B went on to beat United's development side 3-1.
