Republic of Ireland put 7 goals past a hapless Gibraltar side which included a 13 minute hat trick from Robbie Keane. But the most remarkable goal of the night wasn’t scored by an Ireland player. It was an own goal from Gibraltar goalkeeper Jordan Perez who had parried Keane’s chip feebly before the loose ball was cleared off the line straight at Perez. Of all the things Perez could do, he ended up looping the ball past two defenders and into the roof of the net. He was later substituted to cap off a miserable night.

Watch the goal yourself and see the improbable turn of events!
