Would you believe that my most impressive shot was during my first year of playing soccer? I’m being very serious, I was about seven years old when I had my best kick, my best shot, my most impressive punt. It was hit with the beauty of tres dedos, a curve with the outside of my right foot. A curve which would baffle mathematicians with its supreme, almost divine direction. The only problem was that I, a defender, was on my own half of the field and my “awesome shot” was one headed directly towards my own goal. Nothing prepared me for this moment, I never expected it. There were/are no practices focused on reactions towards own goals, how to defend an own goal or even what to expect when you’re expecting an own goal. My only reaction was a sudden surge of shame and embarrassment as the ball flew over the keeper’s head and straight into the net.
