Video: Lyon star injures his own goalkeeper after nearly scoring horror own-goal

Lyon defender Marcal actually injured his own goalkeeper Anthony Lopes after forcing him to stop his awful long-range back pass.

Watch this comical incident below, with Marcal playing the ball a long way back and hitting it a bit too hard, forcing Lopes to race back and just prevent it going over the line for a long-range own goal.

Unfortunately, Lopes looked in a little discomfort after clattering into the post, limping for a moment afterwards, and the commentators suggest the ball may have been trickling just wide anyway, though you can never be too careful.

The shot-stopper won’t have been too happy with his team-mate after this extraordinary incident!
