Minnesota United laugh off Sammy Ndjock's ridiculous own goal

Minnesota United have just about managed to laugh off the ridiculous slapstick own goal scored by goalkeeper Sammy Ndjock in a 2-0 preseason friendly defeat against Bournemouth midweek.

Under no pressure whatsoever, Ndjock dropped a clanger when he accidentally bowled the ball directly into the back of his own net.

However, as per the tongue-in-cheek video put together by Minnesota, it was revealed that the Cameroonian stopper had a good reason for having such sticky fingers.

Very amusing and all, but we definitely think this is one of those "if you don't laugh, you'll cry" moments.
