I-League goalkeeper makes sensationally bad blunder against Shillong Lajong

Churchill Brothers' Monday Osagie scored from the halfway line, but the visitors' net-minder played a huge part

We are part of The Trust Project What is it?

In the eighth minute of the I-League clash on Friday, Churchill Brothers' Nigerian left-back Osagie aimlessly lumped the ball forward towards the penalty box.

To everyone's surprise, his effort somehow ended up in the back of the net.

That's because goalkeeper Phurba Lachenpa, sporting a particularly dodgy haircut, completely misjudged the ball's flight and ended up feebly palming the strike into his own goal.

Cue some... er, overexuberant celebrations from Osagie.

Midfielder Britto PM (yes, that's a name apparently) fired in Churchill Brothers' second from range in the 76th minute to ensure the hosts clinched all three points at the Tilak Maidan Stadium.
