In one the most blatant examples of a goalkeeper being bought, Nigeria's Austin Ejide scored a truly unbelievable own goal during Wednesday's 2-2 draw with Scotland.

Reports in the build-up were dominated by a report from Britain's National Crime Agency to the Scottish FA that Asian gamblers had targetted the match to fix.

The match at Fulham's Craven Cottage went ahead despite those allegations, and then Nigeria goalkeeper Ejide threw the ball into his own net, literally.

Ejide went to catch a ball from a corner, but despite seemingly having been able to grab it easily, he appeared to throw the ball into his own net, with an unnatural hand movement that had to be intentional.

Scotland celebrated regardless, but the strike was eventually ruled out for a slight foul on Ejide.
