Oviedo Own Goal Confirmed
Equaliser at Swansea officially credited against the Costa Rican.
Swansea City’s equaliser in their 2-1 defeat to Everton last month has been officially confirmed as a Bryan Oviedo own goal.
Dwight Tiendalli’s effort took a significant deflection off the Costa Rican on its path past Tim Howard at the Liberty Stadium.
The Premier League’s Goal Accreditation Panel have now ruled that the 70th-minute strike be credited against Oviedo.
The own goal cancelled out Seamus Coleman’s opener, though the Blues went on to record maximum points thanks to Ross Barkley’s late free-kick.
Oviedo has found the net at the right end of the pitch twice for Everton this season – in the back-to-back victories against Stoke City and Manchester United towards the end of 2013.
