An Own Goal Could've Ruined His Career. How He Responded Was Genius

Minnesota United goalkeeper Sammy Ndjock committed the worst mistake of his professional career. Then, he owned it.

If you're a goalkeeper, getting scored on is not ideal. Thus, it follows that getting scored on by your own player is even worse. So in theory, the only thing that could be worse than an own goal would be if you physically threw the ball into the net yourself (this is really complex stuff, guys). But that's ridiculous. Nobody does that. Right? Right?!  

That's Sammy Ndjock, the goalkeeper for Minnesota United, who, it's safe to say, has had better days at the office. It was only a friendly against Premier League side Bournemouth, so it could have been worse. But still...wow. 

Now, most people in Ndjock's situation would be looking to pull a Jonah — find the nearest whale and offer themselves up as an appetizer.

Not Ndjock. He owned it.

We've got to hand it to Ndjock. What a fantastic way to respond to a horrendous mistake.

Perhaps Brad Guzan could learn something from this. Meh. Probably not. #BlameItOnAstonVilla doesn't have the same ring to it.
