star Dakota Fanning was left “traumatised” after she scored an own goal in a soccer match. The 16-year-old actress, who plays the evil Volturi vampire in
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
, said that she was picked to be part of a school team though she was not a “natural player”,
“I did play soccer and my team was called
The Spice Girls
, I was Baby Spice. I was playing in a game one day and I got the ball for the first time and I was so excited and I was running and running,” said Fanning. “There was nobody around me, I was thinking this is an easy game, then I kicked it into the goal and was so excited. I turned around and nobody was cheering for me and nobody was proud of me — and I then realised I’d kicked it in the wrong goal — so I quit soccer. I was traumatised!,” she said.
