Own goal steals show as In­ter beats Chelsea

Muscat Daily - - PRESS RELEASES -

Sin­ga­pore - In­ter Mi­lan’s Ge­of­frey Kon­dog­bia en­tered the an­nals of sport­ing in­famy with a re­mark­able own goal but the Ital­ian side held on to win 2-1 and con­demn Chelsea to a suc­ces­sive pre-sea­son de­feat on Satur­day in Sin­ga­pore.

In­ter led by two goals from Ivan Perisic and Ste­van Jovetic, be­fore what was sup­posed to be a rou­tine back­pass from sub­sti­tute Kon­dog­bia looped over his own goal­keeper and nes­tled into the top cor­ner of the net from fully 40 yards, stun­ning the crowd of over 32,000.

The French­man's em­bar­rass­ing mishap over­shad­owed what had oth­er­wise been an im­pres­sive per­for­mance by In­ter, and in par­tic­u­lar Man­ches­ter United tar­get Perisic.

It was a sec­ond de­feat on the spin for Chelsea af­ter los­ing 2-3 to Bay­ern Mu­nich in Sin­ga­pore.
