Soccer: Canada reaches final after Haiti scores on itself

Recommended Posts

The ball heads towards the net. Haiti’s goalie Josué Duverger’s feet miss it. He doubles back, misses it again.

It rolls closer to the back corner of the net. His foot kicks out once more, trying to stop it, but it hits the net — it’s a goal. 

Duverger raises his hands up to his head, in apparent disbelief.

“He’s not going to sleep tonight. He’s not going to sleep for the next week,” said an on-air commentator. “As Canadians are concerned, you can celebrate out there.” 

The blunder, which is being called one of the “worst” own goals in soccer history, happened during the Tuesday faceoff between Haiti and Canada, in the second leg of a World Cup qualifying match. It also all but ended the Carribean nation’s team’s chance of advancing to the next round of qualifying.
