    Argentine Footballer Scores The Worst Own Goal Ever (Video)

    We have already brought you what we believed was the best goal from this weekend’s soccer action.  Now it is time to bring you the worst.

    Keeper Delivers Goal Kick Into The Wind, Scores On Own Goal (Video)

    Here is a word of advice for all soccer goalkeepers out there.  If you ever find yourself playing in a windstorm, are are awarded a goal kick, keep it on the ground.  Doing so will probably help you avoid the embarrassment of a wind-assisted own goal. Maccabi Haifa goalkeeper Assaf Mendes was the latest to […]

    Female Soccer Player Scores Game-Winning Goal With Her Face (Video)

    What a bummer! This girl just scored the go-ahead, and eventual game-winning goal for her team, but she can’t even enjoy it because her lovely face probably isn’t so lovely anymore thanks to the opposing keeper’s poor aim. This is why I have always been afraid to play adult league recreational sports – specifically, men’s […]

    Today we were at TPS are celebrating “Family Day” – it’s an Ontario (Canada) thing.

    Watch Dan Boyle Score In His Own Net (Video)

    With only four goals in 49 games this season, Dan Boyle is beginning to become somewhat desperate to score these days.  His desperation to find the back of the net reached new heights during last night’s game against the Dallas Stars, as he gave up his pursuit to score on the opposing netminder, and instead, […]

    Tomas Plekanec Wins Faceoff Into His Own Net (Video)

    Montreal Canadiens center Tomas Plekanec didn’t have himself the greatest of nights in the faceoff circle during yesterday’s game against the Boston Bruins.  In addition to winning only nine of the 20 draws he attempted, one of those wins just to happened to end up in the back of his own net. Seeing as how […]

  • Here Is An Own Goal That Was Scored With Authority (Video)

    Here Is An Own Goal That Was Scored With Authority (Video)

    This play still has me scratching my head.  And it appears as though there were a few players on the pitch from both teams who were left doing the same. What did this player think would happen when he kicked the ball towards his own goal?  Was he really surprised to see it end up […]

    Victor Hugo’s Butt Scores Crazy Own Goal (Video)

    I have seen some crazy own goals before, but this may very well be the strangest own goal I have ever witnessed in a soccer game.  In fact, I will take this one step further and say that this could actually be the strangest own goal I have seen in any sport. Take a look. […]

  • Jan Lecjaks Finishes With Ease…In His Own Net

    Jan Lecjaks Finishes With Ease…In His Own Net

    Sometimes I just don’t get these soccer players.  When they are trying to score what appears to be a sure goal, they will often put the ball several feet wide.  But then when they are attempting to steer the ball clear of their own goal, it somehow finds the top corner of the net. I […]

    Pepe Reina Opens EPL Season With Embarrassing Own-Goal

    After seeing their national team bow out early in what was a rather disappointing World Cup performance, English soccer fans have been patiently waiting for the Barclays Premier League season to kick off.  And with a full slate of opening week games taking place over the weekend, perhaps none were more anticipated than the battle […]
