While most leagues in Europe are just now getting back in the groove with preseason friendlies, over in Switzerland the 2014/15 season got already back underway on Saturday, and it didn’t take long for Milan Gajic of Young Boys Bern to score perhaps the goal of the season.
Unfortunately, he put it in his own net!
Gajic put St. Gallen ahead, 2-1, with this incredible half-volley from outside the box that thundered past his goalkeeper and into the top corner:
It might well be Gajic’s greatest goal he’ll ever score, but this is hardly the way he wanted to kick-start his season.
Young Boys did go on the equalize late in the game to at least secure a point in their opener.
