Strong gust of wind turns goalkeeper’s clearance into own goal
In Italy, a strong gust conspired against Delta Porto Tolle's keeper in their Serie D match with Ischia, gifting a 2-0 lead the away side after 31 minutes. The match finished 2-1 to the visitors, meaning the wind was technically responsible for the win. If it is possible to sign bulk movements of air to a football squad, Ischia should definitely look into it for next season.
Incidentally, this isn't the first time the wind has decided it wants to join in the fun: here's a wind goal from Israel and here's one from Germany.
