He is so hard on himself

He is doing really well and his new teacher seems good and he was happy about school

Now he is just so sad and annoyed with himself

I have been talking to him about it and how it happens to man u players and all little boys at some time etc

and he just asked but why do things always happen to me?

and I didnt know what to say

OH bless him

Can you find a U-tube clip of a BIG player scoring an own goal to show him that even the best players in the world do it too?
