Veteran Cameroonian keeper Carlos Kameni scored a comical own goal as Malaga slumped to a 2-1 loss to Valencia in the Spanish La Liga on Wednesday.
Valencia leveled the score four minutes before the break in bizarre fashion after Malaga took a 14th-minute lead.
Kameni turned and jumped in the six-yard box to claw away a right-wing cross but palmed the ball into his own net instead.
Denis Cheryshev netted five minutes after the break to give Valencia a 2-1 win.
Kameni, 32, has been Cameroon's first-choice keeper for more than a decade since making his debut in 2001.
He won the African Cup of Nations with the Indomitable Lions in 2002 and also helped them reach the FIFA Confederations Cup final one year later.
