This is the most bizarre goal you’re going to see today (and probably tomorrow)

Duisburg goalkeeper Mark Flekken conceded a bizarre goal against Ingolstadt in the Bundesliga 2 fixture

Even professional footballers get thirsty.

Ingolstadt striker Stefan Kutschke scored undeniably the easiest goal of his career during a 2-1 win against Duisburg in the Bundesliga 2 fixture.

Someone get Duisburg’s goalkeeper Mark Flekken a taxi.

So what happened there?

Ingolstadt took a quick free-kick in their own penalty area before hoofing the ball up the pitch.

But all Flekken could think about was a refreshing hit of sweet H20.

In the time it took for the ball to go from one box to the other he turned around to grab his water bottle from the back of the net.

It was worth it for a splash of water

When you’re thirsty, you’re thirsty.

By the time Flekken knew what was going on he was four-yards behind his own goal-line, bottle in hand, watching the opposition striker running off to celebrate.

It goes without saying that Flekken’s team-mates were pretty baffled as to what was going on.

We hope the refreshment was worth it.
