    Is this the most embarrassing own goal ever?

    Brazilian goalkeeper Michel Alves has seen his stardom rise dramatically over the past 24 hours after he scored an embarrassing own goal.

    The 31-year-old's new-found fame comes from one of the most embarrassing clangers during Criciuma's defeat to America Mineiro on Saturday, and it will be a moment Alves will never be able to escape.

    After saving a straightforward shot from the opposition forward Fabio Junior, Alves lost balance as he got up and the ball spilled from his hands and into the goal. It was a moment of trembling hesitation that cost his team 0-4 loss at home.
