Zenit disgraced themselves in the Russian Cup by scoring on their own net in the 12th second of the match. Video.
St Petersburg football club Zenit conceded a shameful goal in the Russian Cup play-offs. The episode happened in the 1st minute of the match against Dynamo Moscow.
After the starting whistle, the capital's players crossed the pitch in two passes, after which midfielder Mumi Ngamale shot on goal to Oleksandr Vasyutin. The round ball hit the post, bounced off the goalkeeper's leg, who was lying on the lawn, and then into the goal.
It took 12 seconds from the start of the game to the goal. For 28-year-old Vasyutin, it was his debut match in a Zenit shirt after returning from a loan spell at Swedish side Jurgården. Before that, he last played for Zenit in the summer of 2020.
Recall that Anatoliy Tymoshchuk is one of Zenit's coaches. On January 7, the former Ukrainian national footballer was placed on the sanctions list for 10 years by the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine.
We would like to remind you that Anatoliy refused to condemn Russia for the attack on Ukraine and only managed to squeeze out a small Instagram story in which he simply called for peace.
In turn, Ukrainian soldiers wiped their feet on Anatoliy's T-shirt. And on Tymoshchuk's birthday, the Lutsk City Council deprived the former Ukrainian footballer of the title of "Honorary Citizen of the City".
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, legendary Dynamo Kyiv striker Maksym Shatskikh suggested that Anatoliy Tymoshchuk was not going to return to Ukraine and was linking his life with the aggressor country.
On March 11, 2022, the UAF deprived Tymoshchuk of all his titles. Anatoliy was also banned from football activities in our country for life.
