Martinez of own goal fame hits correct goal from center circle

[VIDEO PICK] Spanish central defender Inigo Martinez became a YouTube star (4.5 million hits) a month ago with a 30-yard, back-heel own goal playing for Spain's U-21s. Last weekend, the 20-year-old Real Sociedad central defender scored his first La Liga goal, a rocket from the center circle.

Martinez's left-footed shot that beat goalkeeper Gorka Iraizoz provided the equalizer in Real Sociedad's 2-1 loss to Athletic Bilbao.
