Perfectly placed volley into own goal
[VIDEO PICK: Off the Post] You may have noticed, we relish a good own goal. Today's offering comes from Germany and we can't help but admire how smoothly Werder
Bremen's Nils Petersen manages to volley the ball into the upper corner of his own net.
Petersen's strike, which gave goalkeeper Raphael Wolf no chance,
came in the fifth minute and it got worse from Bremen, which was down, 3-0, to Mainz by halftime, when Petersen was subbed. And that was the final scoreline.
