20 crisp finishes that made the headlines for all the wrong reasons
It’s already the stuff of legend: Chris Brass scoring the funniest own goal of all time and breaking his nose in the process. Poor bloke. Still funny though.
This Hungarian Cup Quarter Final between Debrecen VSC and FC Fehervar appeared destined for extra time after Debrecen squander the chance to edge ahead from the penalty-spot. But then...
Not the big Swede's fault, but that doesn't keep his name out of the record books. The Aston Villa man's harmless-looking throw-in runs under Peter Enckleman's boot and crawls into the net. And it was against Birmingham. Doh!
Gary Neville's backpass to Paul Robinson hits a divert, forcing the England stopper to take an almighty swing at, err, nothing. Steve McClaren duly wrote down ARSE! in his little notebook...
Lee Dixon was wasted as a full-back. Imagine how many exquisite finishes like this we would have seen from the diminutive Gooner had he been aiming at the right goal...
Arguably the greatest own-goal of all time until Chris Brass' nose-breaker entered the charts. Forest Green's Wayne Hatswell leathers the ball into the top corner whilst attempting to spank the ball out of the ground. Tit!

Qingdao Zhongneng goalkeeper Li Shuai finds himself in the right place at the right time as the ball cannons back off the crossbar. Unfortunately, he wasn't facing the right way!

Paul Gascoigne wowed a nation with his stunner against Scotland at Euro '96. But it had been done before... sortof. Here, the Man City man expertly flicks the ball over his marker before powering a header past his own 'keeper. Tool!
