British soccer goalkeeper David James scores absurd own goal (Video)

In a recent soccer match from the UK, Bristol City goalkeeper David James came out of the net to stop the attack by opposing Watford by punching away a deep crossing pass heading towards the penalty box. However, somehow James punched the ball in such a way that the ball not only kept heading towards the net, but changed direction so that it rolled straight in. The result was an absurd own goal that has to be seen to be believed.

No Bristol City teammates were able to bail out James from his gaffe, as Watford won the match 2-0.
