VIDEO: Is this the most amazing own goal ever?

* * *

Festus Baise, a Nigerian defender for Citizen AA, scored perhaps the most spectacular own goal I’ve ever seen in a Hong Kong First Division game against Sun Hei last Friday.

The move by the 31-year-old is often referred to as a “scorpion kick” but I’m not sure it’s ever been done like this before. Fortunately for Baise, his team held on for the 3-2 win.

Thanks to a couple readers for passing this along.
