Looks like we have ourselves an early candidate for Worst Goal of the Year.

San Jose Earthquakes netminder Daniel Vega tried to get fancy with a goal kick during Saturday’s match against FC Dallas. But instead of completing the back-heel finish, he knocked the ball into his own net.

See for yourself:


It wasn’t a completely disastrous afternoon for Vega and the Earthquakes, as San Jose and Dallas drew 2-2.
