World Cup 2010, Uruguay Vs. Ghana: Diego Forlan Equalizes With His Own Jabulani Goal

The second Jabulani goal of the match has brought Uruguay even, with a 20 yard direct kick from Diego Forlán in the 55th minute going over the Ghanaian wall and swerving to the right, around goalkeeper Richard Kingson, for the equalizing goal.

The original flight of Forlán's shot took the ball just to the right of Kingson's wall, to which the goalkeeper reacted by moving to his right.  The ball then kept moving to Kingson's left and went into the next, the second time tonight a goalkeeper allowed a goal through misjudging the flight of a long shot.

Now in the 59th minute, the score is tied 1-1.
