watch Own goals in a football match make me nostalgic and sad. The very first Football World cup that I actively watched was in the year 1994 when the Columbian defender Andrés Escobar scored an own goal against the USA ending Columbia’s World Cup journey. He was killed in a pub within a week by a mafia member, a shocking incident for me at that tender age.
watch 2018 World Cup is constantly reminding me of that incident. There have been 11 own goals scored so far, a highest so far in any world-class tournament. Let’s have a look at the list of own goals:
- Aziz Bouhaddouz’s own goal during injury time let Iran win against Morocco unexpectedly

- Aziz Behich of Australia scored own goal against France resulting in a 2-1 loss for Australia
- Oghenekaro Etebo, Nigeria vs Croatia resulted in a 2-0 loss for Nigeria
- Thiago Cionek of Poland literally changed the match result with his own goal, losing to Senegal by 2-1
- The silliest own goal of the tournament, was made by Ahmed Fathi during Egypt’s match with Russia. Though he was not the only one to blame. Egypt lost by a good margin of 3-1 to Russia
- Russia has also been on the receiving end of own goals. Both Denis Cheryshev and Sergei Ignashevich have scored own goals in the tournament against Uruguay and Spain respectively.
- Yann Sommer from Switzerland scored an own goal in the last moment resulting in a draw against Costa Rica
- Yassine Meriah from Tunisia scored an own goal against Panama but was lucky enough to escape the consequences as Tunisia finally won the match 2-1
- Edson Álvarez, Mexico was not so fortunate. Mexico lost the match 3-0 to Sweden.
- Brazilian footballer Fernandinho is the only player to have scored an own goal in the quarter-finals of WC 2018, a shameful feat since Brazil lost the match 2-1 and got eliminated by Belgium.
