Despite the ball going in because of the opponent’s mistake, the Cameroonian-born defender wheeled away in celebration, pointing to the Barcelona crest on his kit.

The incident attracted quite a lot of attention over social media, as supporters have been jamming Twitter with reactions since the occurrence of the event.
