SAME MISTAKES

Sergei Ignashevich is still too busy wrestling players to care about defending set-pieces

The usually experienced defender was at fault for another comical goal

He’s clearly not learnt from his mistakes.

Sergei Ignashevich is making his 126th cap for Russia in their round of 16 clash with Spain.

Despite being an experienced pro, the 38-year-old centre-back is playing like an international novice.

We all had a good laugh when Ignashevich comically pushed Edinson Cavani out of the way in their last game against Uruguay.

The move inadvertently left Luis Suarez with plenty of space to slot his free-kick past Igor Akinfeev.

He just decided to pay zero attention to the ball and proceeded to wrestle Cavani

Well, he’s only gone and bloody done it again.

As Marco Asensio lined up to whip in a free-kick, Ignashevich only had eyes for Sergio Ramos and decided to challenge the notorious wrestler to a bout.

He stuck to Ramos like glue

I’m no defensive expert, but I’m pretty sure Ignashevich shouldn’t be in that position?

Maybe he should consider taking up rugby?

Was Ignashevich actually fired as a hitman by Mohamed Salah? Who knows.

There was another interesting aspect of this liquid goal. Nobody has a clue who the ball actually came off.

Did it hit Ramos’ boot, or Ignashevich’s heel? We’ll let you decide.

At 38-years-old and 352 days, Ignashevich also becomes the oldest player to ever score an own goal at a World Cup.

Happy birthday, mate.
