Sao Paolo goalkeeper Rogerio Ceni scores bizarre own goal

During his 22 years at Sao Paolo, goalkeeper Rogerio Ceni has has scored over 100 goals, thanks to his tendency to take free kicks and penalties for the Brazilian side.

Last year the 39-year-old became the first goalkeeper in world football to achieve a three-figure goal tally, and having recently returned from six-months out through a shoulder injury, the three-time Campeonato winner was undoubtedly keen to get his name on the scoresheet in Wednesday night's league match against Nautico.

Ceni did score during the game, but unfortunately  it was in his own net, following a looping clearance attempt that three defenders on the line decided to do very little about.

See some of Ceni's happier goals — set to the dulcet tones of the rapper from Linkin Park — in the highlight clip below...
