Novorizontino went on to win the second division clash 2-1 on June 24.

However, footage of their opener has now gone viral on social media.

Sport defender Alisson Cassiano was the unlucky player to put the ball into his own net for the home side.

Following kick-off, Sport passed the ball around their defence as Novorizontino applied pressure to their hosts.

As a forward closed him down, Cassiano turned to pass the ball back to goalkeeper Caique Franca.

The keeper had moved to the edge of his box, though, leaving him out of reach of the pass.

Both players were forced to look at each other in despair as Cassiano’s pass rolled into an empty net.

Fans were left stunned by the goal on X, but were split on whether to blame Cassiano or Franca.


One supporter wrote: 2This is the easiest lead ever.”

Another added: “What is the centre-back doing? He even looked before he passed the ball.”

Who are these famous footballers?

A third fan also commented: “Sack that goalkeeper with immediate effect.”

The rest of the match was not without drama as Novorizontino added a second from the penalty spot before half-time.

Sport were able to pull a goal back during the second half but failed to find an equaliser.

Both sides were also reduced to 10-men before full-time in their heated encounter.
