Must-See Goals

Must-See (Own) Goal: FC Twente

Yes, it happened Tuesday, but we'd be remiss if we didn't share an all-time great own goal courtesy of FC Twente defender Peter Wisgerhof and keeper Sander Boschker. Enjoy:

  • Mark

    To his credit, you can see the ball bounce right before he swings. But he did take his eye off of it.


  • Ben S.

    not really the defender’s fault…ask Jeff Parke about his RB own goal that Conway wifed.


  • KNPonder

    Good observation. The ball was just rolling flat for a good stretch and it did take a weird and unexpected bounce before the keeper swings. I could understand him shanking it or kicking it with his shin, but the complete miss is inexcusable. You are right; he completely took his eye off it.

    To me thats on the defender. You’re always taught to pass it back outside of the frame of the goal just for that reason.

    Looked like a pretty good play on a difficult ball from the defender. The striker was right there and considering the defender dove and kicked it was a 100% workable pass.

    This recently happened to an English National goalie as well, Robinson, I think. If I remember correctly, it was during WC qualification too.


  • Kenny_B

    I was going to say that. If I recall correctly, Robinson’s took an even bigger bounce.

    C, I can’t say I agree it’s the defenders fault at all. You are taught to put the ball outside the frame… if at all possible. With the sliding pass I thought the defender had done well.


  • Travis in Mpls

    The best part of this is the silence from the Dutch broadcaster for 37 seconds of the 1:05 clip


  • Joamiq

    To me it didn’t look like he took his eye off it at all. He’s staring straight down at the ball when he tries to kick it.
