Yuta Minami (南 雄太, born 30 September 1979)[1] is a Japanese football player who currently plays for Yokohama FC in J2 League.[2]

Mistake[edit]

Minami became one of the few goalkeepers in football history managing to score an own goal against Sanfrecce Hiroshima in a J. League match on May 22, 2004. He had gathered the ball and originally planned to throw the ball at first, but he paused and lost control, hurling the ball back into the net to the disbelief of his Kashiwa team mates. The goal wouldn't matter, as Kashiwa lost three goals to nil.[3][4]
