10 of the Best Own Goals in the History of Football
- Top 10 Best Own Goals in Football
#8 Gary Neville vs. Croatia (2006)
Though Gary Neville's backpass led to this bizarre goal, it was former Tottenham Hotspur and England goalkeeper Paul Robinson who should take the blame for this. It was a brutal blow to Robinson's career who was England's No.1 till then. But this mistake mentally devasted him, and he never seemed to recover completely from it.
#7 Chris Brass vs. Darlington (2006)
One of the freakiest own goals you will ever see on a football pitch. Chris tried to clear the ball over his head while on loan at Bury in 2006; instead, it cannoned into his face and ricocheted into his own next. He almost broke his nose in the process, which made it a painful experience in more ways than one for Brass.Published 30 Aug 2018, 10:02 IST
