The Three Greatest Own Goals of All Time

March 8 2007

You can't beat a good own goal
3. Lee Dixon, for Coventry v Arsenal (h), First Division, 1991-1992
An Arsenal defender – and member of the ‘famous’ Arsenal back four – lobbing his own goal-keeper from 35 yards. What’s not to like? (Apologies for the high Ian Wright content of this clip.)

2. Wayne Hatswell, for Morecambe v Forest Green Rovers (h), FA Cup, 2000-2001
I love the way that, for a split second before Hatswell lashes the ball into the top corner of his own goal, he creates the impression that he’s actually in complete control of the situation.

1. Chris Brass, for Darlington v Bury (a), League Two, 2005-2006
He broke his nose doing this. Schadenfreude rarely tastes so good.
