Aurelien Chedjou hates when his goalkeeper catches the ball.

That’s the only explanation as to why the Lille defender scored this own goal whilst in uniform for Cameroon this week.

Chedjou, 29, boosted Thailand’s -- yes, that Thailand -- lead to 2-0 with this own goal, plucking the ball out of the air before Guy N’Dy Assembé could snare it.
