  WWF - Man's five worst environmental own goals
An "own-goal" or "auto-goal" is when someone from a team scores a goal in their own net, against themselves.
Football (or Soccer to some) for example is famous for some spectacular own goals.
In the same vein we thought we would put together 5 of the greatest environmental own goals: the things the human race has done over the centuries that have seen us make some incredibly stupid choices and make a real mess of our planet...

 Figure 1
The hapless defender who steers the ball past his own goalkeeper into the net to concede the decisive goal in a cup-tie is part of the romance of the game (even if the disconsolate defender might not see it as such).
But as far as own goals are concerned, they currently have no universal criteria on which to make their decisions.
Maybe it wasn't an own goal in the classical sense, because that needs the player to be completely responsible for his own action.

However in doing so they soon begin to devise their own goals and challenges (build the biggest windfarm, make a pyramid, burn the whole city).
Beating your own challenge is different to conquering a predefined (and hopefully well crafted) mission chain that is shared by all the players of the game.
Perhaps the implicit overarching goal in this model would be to beat all the individual modes (as in wario ware).

FIFA will be using computer technology to clarify whether a goal is an own goal or not for the first time when the World Cup starts on Friday.
Own goals are rare in the World Cup; there have only been 24 in the 644 matches played in the finals since 1930.

An own goal cannot be scored directly from any restart (throw-in, free kick, etc) by the free kick; a corner kick is awarded to the attacking team should this happen).
When a goal is scored after a shot (by the attacking side) is deflected into the net by a defending player, whether this is scored as a goal for the attacker or as an own goal is determined by whether the original shot was on target.
If a goal is scored by a player on the defending team, credit for the goal goes to the last player on the other team to have touched the puck, mainly to the belief that the player credited with the goal had his shot deflected.

The reason there are huge advantages to a keeper taking her own goal kicks is that it allows for another option from her teammates.
If a the keeper takes the goal kick, the backs can step up and not worry as much about the long first ball from the opponent because they can take away the space that the opponents can be in while players are going for the first ball.
Of the two reasons the keeper should try to take their own goal licks, the second is the more important of the two.

Andres Escobar was shot dead after scoring an own goal in the 1994 world cup that cost Colombia their place in the Tournament.
He was murdered outside a restaurant in his home town, apparently shot 12 times, and after each shot was fired, his assailant shouted "goal" at him.

 Goalkeeping Edition 201   (Site not responding. Last check: )
If a field player has to take the goal kick for the keeper, the opponent still has 10 players who can win the ball but now the attacking team only has 9 players to win the ball (since the keeper and the player taking the goal kick are both back in the 18).
If the keeper takes the goal kick it will usually allow her team to compress the field by having all of the backs step up (unless they decide to take a short goal kick).
This puts the team taking the goal kick into a difficult position to win the ball since they now have to worry about their spacing defensively in case of a counterattack.
