Watch: Chennai goalkeeper's dreadful, lazy clearance produces inevitable results

Slovenian Uros Poljanec will be having nightmares over his horrific pass that led to the easiest of goals

We are part of The Trust Project What is it?

Diego Maradona wasn't the only one causing a stir among India's football community on Monday.

Minerva Punjab beat Chennai City 2-1 in the I-League but were gifted their opening goal from the visitors' goalkeeper Poljanec.

The Slovenian, who recently played six games for Icelandic club Fjardabyggdar - regarded as one of the worst clubs in the country - naively tried to tap the ball away from his goal rather than give it a proper hoof.

The result? The ball instantly smacking Ghanaian forward William Opoku's leg before crashing into the back of the net. Doh.

(Please do also enjoy Opoku's superbly over-the-top celebration from his moment of opportunism.)
