WATCH: Incredible team own goal in Estonia
While unfortunate deflections and misdirected headers are all well and good, you simply can't beat an elegant, well-worked own-goal.
Indeed, we feel the need to humbly doff our caps to Estonian side Paide Linnameeskond, who somehow managed to find themselves 1-0 down inside 14 seconds recently -- and all without their opponents touching the ball.

Exquisitely done. Six passes and into the back of the net with minimum fuss.
Paide went on to lose 3-1 to Levadia in the first round of the Estonian Cup, having lost 8-0 to the very same team in the league just three days earlier.
