Last weekend, Minnesota United beat the Fort Lauderdale Strikers 3-1 in an NASL game. During the course of the game, something, well, not so great happened to Fort Lauderdale. Own goal city from the unsuspecting head of Rafael Alves.

Minnesota United, of course, captured the own goal in all its glory. And decided to create a video titled, “You Scored on Yourself?!? Bro. Come on, Bro.”

Rivalries do such bedfellows make. And appreciative claps. Which I’m giving right now.

Utrecht centerback Mike van dor Hoorn was trying to clear the ball, but didn’t succeed. Instead, he tripped over his own feet and fell on his face, all while scoring one of the worst own goals this year. I love how even the AZ Alkmaar players were trying to comfort him.

We’ve seen some incredible own goals in recent times. But defenders across the world are a gift that keeps on giving.

Down in the Mexican Primera Division over the weekend, Chivas de Guadalajara was taking on Estudiantes Tecos, with the stakes high for both teams.

Defender Edgar Mejia did the honors this time in the goal above, slicing what looks like an attempted clearance into a perfect lob of his own goalkeeper for what proved to be the difference in the game, as Tecos went on to win 1-0.

Quite the own goal. Or as they would say in Mexico – Autogolazo!

Embarrassing own goal

Written by Reshad Bahadori

You know how everyone always says to keep your eyes on the ball. I’m going to go out on limb here and say that Costa Rican keeper Julieth Arias may not have been listening. The Costa Rican defender Marianne Ugalde passed the ball back to her keeper who hesitated just enough to allow the ball to drift in to the goal. Canada went on to win the Olympic qualifying match 4-0.

Goal of the Day

Written by Administrator


The Goal of the day comes courtesy of Citizen defender Festus Baise. In one of the most unusual own goals you will ever see, Baise scores on his own net with an unbelievable reverse scorpion kick. Thankfully Citizen came out on top, defeating Sunray Cave JC Sun Hei by the score of 3-2. The only thing to figure out is which is more impressive: the goal or the background music?
