VIDEO: Brazilian defender Flavio scores comical own goal

Brazilian defender Flavio paid a comical price after he took his eye off the ball in Feirense's Primeira Liga clash with Maritimo on Sunday.

With his side in the lead and defending a set-piece, the 22-year-old stuck close to his designated opponent but was none the wiser as the ball bounced off his head and past his own goalkeeper.

Luckily for the former Nautico man, Feirense restored their lead through a Tiago Silva penalty five minutes later and they held on to secure a crucial three points.
