Minnesota #BlameItOnTheJelly after crazy own goal

Earlier this week, Minnesota United goalkeeper Sammy Ndjock hit the headlines for scoring one of the most bizarre own goals you’ll ever see. Luckily the American team have seen the funnier side of the situation.

Bournemouth are in the USA on a pre-season tour and one of their stops was in Minnesota. While the Cherries won 4-0, it was Ndjock’s crazy own goal that had everyone talking, with the man from the Cameroon completing one of the most memorable howlers in recent years…

Rather than try forget the mistake (and the defeat) as quickly as possible, United have embraced the error and provided this explanation…

Not surprisingly, the hashtag #BlameItOnTheJelly produced some rather funny responses. Well played Minnesota, well played.
