Video: Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson’s hilarious own goal against Cologne

Defender scores in his own net from well outside the area

Click above to see Carl Jenkinson’s horrific own goal against Cologne in Arsenal’s 2-1 win on Saturday afternoon.

The Gunners were two goals up thanks to a Gervinho double before Jenkinson managed to put the ball into his own net from well outside the penalty area.

The defender signed from London rivals Charlton earlier in the summer.

The 19-year-old made only eight appearances for Addicks during his time at the south London club but that was enough to convince Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger he was worth shelling out over �1million for.

It is unlikely Jenkinson will walk straight into the Gunners’ starting XI and he could be loaned out first team experience.
