Fans have joked on social media after a clip of one of the most calamitous goals of all time began circulating on social media.
The clip comes from Saturday’s Ukrainian Premier League clash between Veres Rivne and Vorskla.
Just 20 minutes into the first half Vorskla had taken a comfortable two-goal lead thanks to a goal from Vladlen Yurchenko and a Valerij Kucherov own goal.
The hosts were about to hit back however, thanks to a hilarious series of errors.
Vorskla ‘keeper Pavlo Isenko, who inexplicably wears the No 7 shirt, begins the sequence by playing the ball out short from his goal kick, immediately putting his teammate under pressure.

The ball is then fed back to the hapless stopper, with Brazilian forward Iago Siqueira attempting to intercept.
Vorskla once again have the ball, but a collision between Isenko and his defender results in an open goal for Veres midfielder Stanislav Sharay, who duly converts from six-yards.
Cacophony of errors aside, Volska held on to their lead to secure their first points of the season but that didn’t stop fans online sharing jokes about the unfortunate passage of play.
One fan wrote: ‘Playing out from the back ain’t for everyone’
Specsavers joined fans on social media poking for at the unfortunate series of events
Another added: ‘First time watching this it felt like red started defending and white started attacking. Had to rewatch again to sort out what even happened’
A further fan agreed: ‘Took me a minute to see who is attacking’
Another joked: ‘When you are trying to give your little brother a goal in fifa but dont wanna make it too obvious:’
Meanwhile Specsavers’ notoriously cheeky social media team couldn’t help but get involved with the fun, with the optical retailer tweeting: ‘**rubs hands**’ at the sight of the defensive failure.
