Dutch Soccer Player Deflects A Shot Off The Goalie's Head For A Freak Goal

A wild 3-3 game between Utrecht and Roda in the Dutch Eredivisie featured one of the luckiest free kick goals of the year..

Utrecht’s Jans Toornsta curled in a hopeful shot from way outside the box. It clanged off the crossbar, ricocheted into the back of the goalie’s head, and ended up in the back of the net.

To add insult to injury, the goalie Filip Kurto was credited with an own goal on the play.
