Soccer Player Scores Own Goal From Ridiculously Far Away, Probably Hates Life

I feel bad for Josh Rose. Like you, I’d never heard of him until a few minutes ago. And now I only know him as the dude who scored an own goal from, like, 50 yards away.

Rose’s blunder came in a recent Central Coast Mariners match down in Australia. My apologies if you have that contest DVR’d.

His back pass to the keeper just kept going and going until it found its way into the back of the wrong net.

That has to be a helpless feeling. And one Rose will re-live for a long time.

Doing literally anything else with the ball would have been a better choice.

Poor guy. I hate to contribute to his infamy but you do not see stuff like this often.
