Video: Italy lead Turkey in Euro 2020 as Everton-linked Merih Demiral scores a comical own goal

We often hear coaches and commentators talking about a player simply putting a ball into a dangerous area, as it means that any touch could result in a goal.

This is possibly the perfect example of that tonight as Berardi found himself in a great position, but the angle was just a little bit too tight to get the shot away.

He hammers it across goal and it does end up in the back of the net, but it’s a comical own goal as Demiral falls over and guides the ball home as it smashes into his chest:
