Top 5 / Top 10

Goals are source of results as well as entertainment for supporters across the globe. Goals can be thunderbolts, stunners, absolute beauties, cool finishes and the adjectives can go on. There are two distinct finishes seen in the game, one that gets the team closer to victory and one that gets the opponent closer to a result. Own goals can be the biggest embarrassment for top flight footballers. Some of the own goals are plain unfortunate whereas there are ones that are just outright funny. Some of the these funny incidents live with the players for the rest of their careers.Picture this, in an attempt to clear the ball the player takes a massive hoof at it and instead of clearing it well the ball ricochets off another player to trickle into the back of the net. I guess you have seen such funny incidents. We look at 10 funniest all time own goals scored in football.

#10 Jan Lecjaks

Teams: Partizan Belgrade v Anderlecht

Year: 2010

Fun Quotient: That’s what you call a sweet finish

The 2010 Champions League qualifier between the two teams was an entertaining 2-2 draw. However, one player who would be embarrassed even now after seeing the highlights is Lecjaks. Nicknamed the "new Marek Jankulovski", Lecjaks has been a hot prospect in Czech Republic for a few years. He is highly rated for his left foot and it was on show in that qualifier. However, as he looked to clear a dangerous attack that was building from the right, instead of hitting the top tier in the stand, Lecjaks smacked the ball into the roof of the net, giving keeper Silvio Proto no chance. His own goal was definitely one of the sublime finishes of 2010-2011.
