It’s not often that Swiss soccer highlights make their rounds on the internet, but when something amazing happens and there’s video of it, eventually it’ll make it to the masses.

The good news for Gulfo and Pully is that the world’s most stylish own goal didn’t come back to haunt them.
The match wound up finishing 3-3, and Pully pulled out a 4-3 win in the penalty shootout. They’ll take on Malley in the final on May 25.
