Kolo Toure made a really embarrassing (are they any other kind?) own goal today, hurting Liverpool FC’s chances in a match they ended up winning 3-2 over relegation zone dwellers Fulham. Luckily for Toure, the team won dramatically at the finish. Liverpool leaders Daniel Sturridge and Steven Gerrard made sure this own goal didn’t hurt Liverpool’s Champions League chances. But this isn’t the first horrible gaffe made by Kolo Toure this month.
A few days ago, he gifted West Brom a goal in an eventual 1-1 draw, by making a terrible pass. But today Toure outdid himself with this pathetic own-goal in Liverpool’s match with bottom of table Fulham. I’ll let the Vine do the talking.
Good job, good effort Kolo Toure. But hey Fulham fans loved it! This may have been one of the worst own goals of the season. Certainly among the worst we’ve ever seen at Craven Cottage. Luckily for him Liverpool won dramatically at the finish.
Update: Toure was done making dumb decisions, later in the very same game, he delivered this crushing hockey style forecheck on an opposing player.
