Because it's a bye week, here's a spectacular own goal scored in Sweden

In the latest installment of "Because it's a Bye Week," we look at an incredible own goal scored in a Swedish Damallsvenskan (women's league) match on Tuesday. 

Just three minutes into the match, Hammarby goalkeeper Sofia Lundgren attempted a clearance which deflected off a forward for Örebro​, and bounced toward an open net. Hammarby defender Helén Eke had a clear path to stop the danger but instead mishit the ball directly into her own net for the own goal. 

Hammarby eventually lost the match 3-1 with Eke pulled from the field after just 30 minutes.
