Unfortunate Own Goal Ties NASL Match (VIDEO)

Josh FordIt’s yet another example of why coaches tell players to put shots at the net.

With FC Edmonton trailing hosts Fort Lauderdale Strikers 1-0 late in their NASL match on July 11, Edmonton’s Sadi Jalali’s strike at the 86th minute from just outside the box avoided Strikers’ keeper Josh Ford but hit the post.

Unfortunately for Ford and Ft. Lauderdale, the shot caromed off the post, off Ford’s head and into the net. The match ended in a 1-1 draw.

Take a look at the goal below.
