Who was killed because of his own goal during the FIFA World Cup?
During the 1994 FIFA World cup, the defender of the Columbian soccer team Andreas Eskobar during the match against the USA team scored an own goal. They were not able to win the game and were not able to advance from the group. This loss cost them the chance to compete, so the team had to fly back home. Several days later, Askobar was shot while he was in his car. Witnesses say that the shooter yelled "GOAL!" after every shot he took.
Later, the shooter was found and confessed that he lost a lot of money betting on the team, and was very angry with the defender.
