VIDEO: Soccer goalkeeper scores ridiculous, wind-assisted own goal

Lucky for him he wasn’t taking a leak at exactly the same time as this goal kick, because that would have been disastrous.

Maccabi Haifa goalie Assaf Mendes probably didn’t think his goal kick would come back to haunt him this way in a friendly against Dynamo Kiev on Wednesday.  But it did, and the end result was this fluky own goal caused by some ridiculously crazy high winds.  Mendes learned the hard way that Mother Nature is a cruel mistress at times, and like most people, doesn’t care for soccer goalies and their fancy, high-falutin’ goal kicks.  Oh, and she doesn’t like the fact that they don’t call their mothers enough.
