Adelaide’s Eugene Galekovic is in the running for scoring the worst own goal we've ever seen.

Playing in the A League against Brisbane a simple long ball towards the goal befuddles the entire Adelaide defence. 

Goalkeeper Galekovic makes a complete hash of getting to the ball first, but then he compounds his initial error with a ludicrous hoof into the sky before ultimately bundling the ball into his own net.

To make matters worse, Brisbane won the game 3-2, so the brutal own goal cost his team a share of the points.
