Video: Canada vs. Costa Rica Women’s Soccer Match Produces Best Own Goal Ever

| by Alex Groberman

Canada absolutely destroyed Costa Rica in a 5-1 rout on Monday at the CONCACAF women's Olympic qualifying tournament. A match-up that was originally billed as a battle of titans quickly turned into a massacre when Christine Sinclair and the rest of the Canadian side systematically dismantled their Costa Rican opponents in a way that eventually became slightly embarrassing to watch.

The unquestionably best thing about this game, though, happened early in the second half. On what appeared to be a routine backpass, Costa Rican defender Marianne Ugalde slowly tapped the ball to goalkeeper Julieth Arias. All seemed to be going according to plan in the sequence until Arias shockingly -- and hilariously -- let the ball slide past her into the goal.
