When I first saw this video, it struck me as one of soccer’s greatest goals in recent memory.
Then I realized it was an own goal.
But I haven’t budged off my initial thought, because it’s just an amazing strike.
Inter Milan’s Geoffrey Kondogbia tries to give the ball to goalkeeper Daniele Padelli but launches an incredible 50-yard rainbow over the ‘keeper’s head and into his own net.
Inter nonetheless beat Chelsea, 2-1. The friendly was played in Singapore as part of the International Champions Cup.
Kondogbia could never execute that shot again. Not into either net.
