Lithuanian women’s football team ended another game in a painful defeat in the European championship qualifiers, losing 0:6 against Belgium. However, the spectacularly absurd own goal stole the game's highlight.

In the first half, Algimantė Mikutaitė finished the Belgian cross by powering the ball into the back of Lithuania’s own net, despite being unpressured by the Belgian attackers.

The Belgian team made 42 attempts at goal, and Lithuania – just one. The national women’s team is placed last in Group E with no wins and five losses. Lithuania will still face Croatia, Romania and Belgium.
