The 22-year-old fired an unstoppable effort into the top corner of his own goal as Uruguay were beaten by Italy in a friendly encounter

Jose Gimenez continues to be linked with some of Euriope's top clubs as we enter the summer transfer window, but he will hope none of them were watching him in action for Uruguay on Wednesday.

REPORT: Italy cruise past Uruguay

The Atletico Madrid centre-back lined up at the heart of his country's defence as they took on Italy, but it soon became a night to forget for the 22-year-old.

Despite Lorenzo Insigne's pinpoint ball over the top finding Andrea Belotti, the Torino striker's poor control looked to have allowed Gimenez to clear the danger.

But instead of getting rid, the defender inexplicably fired an unstoppable effort into the top corner of his own goal to give the home side a lead they would never relinquish in a 3-0 win.

Check out the video above - is Gimenez's strike the best own goal you've ever seen?!
