Did you know the record for the most own goals in a match is held by a club from Madagascar, Stade Olympique l’Emryne.
Their own goal fest was a mark of protest against a refereeing decision from the week previously. They were winning the match 2-1 when the referee awarded a very dubious penalty. Immediately after the penalty was scored, the referee blew for full time. This defeat meant Stade were out of the running for the championship.
There very next match was against the newly crowned champions, Ademas. Directly, from each kick off Stade would turn tail and score an own goal. They did this 149 times in the same match, or a goal approximatly every 35 seconds. A novel protest, but extremely damaging to the goal difference.
Has anyone heard of any similar protests?
