GERMANY international Mats Hummels claims his three-year-old son celebrated his own-goal against France at Euro 2020.
The Borussia Dortmund defender hit the ball beyond Manuel Neuer to give the defending world champions a 1-0 win in Munich.
The 32-year-old's nightmare began when Manchester United star Paul Pogba played a lovely pass to Lucas Hernandez.
The Bayern Munich left back, playing at his home ground, hit a bouncing ball across the six-yard box.
Knowing Kylian Mbappe was waiting to finish the move, Hummels tried to clear the danger but hammered his effort into the top corner.
The defender's mistake left German fans devastated – but at least his son thought it was a cracking effort.
Speaking to Bild, Hummels said: "Thankfully, he doesn't know yet what an own goal is.
"He thinks the ball in the net is always right. I was told that he was celebrating. I'll probably have to teach him that."
BETTING SPECIAL: GET CRISTIANO RONALDO TO SCORE VS GERMANY AT 30/1
Hummels will be hoping to keep a clean sheet in Germany's next match against Portugal this evening.
Joachim Low's side need to stop the defending champions and their talisman Cristiano Ronaldo if they want to keep their European hopes alive.
Portugal defeated Hungary 3-0 in their opening match of the tournament thanks to a late brace from the Juventus forward.
Ronaldo now has 11 goals in the competition, the most in European Championship history.
Hummels' own goal wasn't the biggest talking point of the match between Germany and France as an environmental protester parachuted onto the pitch.
And manager Low was caught sniffing his fingers AGAIN in his team's defeat.
