Watch: Chievo's Emanuele Giaccherini Scores A Quite Incredible Own Goal Against Sassuolo

Watch: Chievo's Emanuele Giaccherini Scores A Quite Incredible Own Goal Against Sassuolo

Former Sunderland and Juventus man Emanuele Giaccherini scored one of the most bizarre and incredible own goals in recent memory this afternoon.

The 33-year old was playing for Serie A's bottom club Chievo against Sassuolo today and was involved in a moment of pure comedy in stoppage time.

1-0 down to Sassuolo in stoppage time, Chievo goalkeeper Stefano Sorrentino produced a stunning reaction save to thwart the opposition from close range.

The ball then bounced over to Giaccherini, who attempted to chest the ball back to his 'keeper. Yet somehow, Sorrentino lay on the floor and could only scramble as the ball trickled over the line. It looked very, very dodgy.

You see players coolly chest the ball back to their goalkeeper on so many occasions and there's not even much pace on the ball, which makes it all the more outrageous.

Having failed to win any of their first eleven games this season, Chievo are lurched right at the foot of the Italian top flight.

Even worse, they are on -1 points because of a financial related points deduction - but don't be surprised if that deduction increases given the very shady own goal today.
