When playing football, it is not uncommon for a player to score an own goal; in fact, we have seen famous players score for the opposing teams rather than their own.
However, according to the Sun Football, a Brazilian club has fired two football players after a bizarre own goal just one minute before the end of the match on the contrary that practiced match fixing. The bizarre own goal occurred during the final minute of the match.
After receiving a back pass from a teammate who didn’t expect him to make the decision he did, midfielder Julie Ocampos shot the ball into his own net. His teammate was surprised by his choice.
Luis Antonio, the goalkeeper, made no attempt to stop the ball from going into his own net, which is suggestive of clear evidence that match rigging took place between the two of them.
A later announcement made by the club stated that the two had been fired, and an inquiry is currently being conducted by prosecutors to determine whether or not it is true that they had gambled.
In the best case scenario, scoring an own goal isn’t as horrible as it may be due of pressure, but it’s against the law in football to fix matches.
