- John Boye's own goal in the 2014 World Cup has been officially recognized as the second most incredible goal
- This recognition was given by Four Four Two, a UK-based magazine
An unfortunate development which may have contributed to Ghana’s exit from the 2014 World Cup has received official recognition.
John Boye scored the first goal in Ghana’s 2-1 loss to Portugal in the 2014 World Cup Group stage game, slicing a clearance above Fatau Dauda’s head into his own net.
Crestfallen, the defender lay down the park until a colleague came to assist him to his feet.
Although Ghana equalized through Asamoah Gyan, Portugal won the game late on after another defensive blunder gifted Ronaldo a goal.
According to a report by Ghanacelebrities.com, the incident has however been captured by a popular magazine based in the United Kingdom, as one of the most incredible own goals ever scored.
The magazine, named Four Four Two, listed it as the second most incredible World Cup goal ever scored.
Four Four Two is a UK based magazine published monthly by Haymarket. It is one of the world’s foremost footy magazines and is available in over 16 languages.
