Chelsea loanee and Vitesse defender Fankaty Dabo scored a calamitous 35-yard own goal as his side suffered defeat to Groningen in the Dutch Eredivisie on Sunday. Receiving the ball out on the right flank, Dabo found himself under pressure, but he made a mess of playing it back to his goalkeeper, Jeroen Houwen. The 22-year-old struck the ball from distance clear over the head of his stranded goalkeeper, which made the score 1-1. Groningen went on to win the game 4-2 to help steer them clear of the bottom three. Vitesse’s third defeat of the season leaves them in sixth place on 19 points. (Video courtesy: SNTV)
