A soccer player scored in her own net from 50 meters at the World Cup. Video
Barcelona's central defender Laia Codina scored an auto-goal in the 1/8 finals of the World Cup, which is held in Australia and New Zealand from July 20 to August 20. The 23-year-old scored from 50 meters into her team's net in the match against Switzerland.
Codina began to be pressed by her opponents near the center circle in the 11th minute. The Spaniard didn't notice that her goalkeeper Catalina Kohl was far away from the goal and gave a back pass. The ball flew past Kohl at high speed, hitting the frame of the goal.
It is worth noting that Laia also made a double and scored once again, now in the right goal. The meeting eventually ended with a 5-1 victory for the favorites.
The Spanish national team will fight with the Dutch team for the exit to the semifinals. The match will be held on August 11.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, Women's World Cup held on August 3 was an incredible sensation. The German team (No. 2 FIFA ranking) could not go to the playoffs of the Mundial for the first time in history.
