No10 – Andres Escobar gets shot (1994)

One of the darkest hours in World Cup history came after Colombian defender Andres Escobar scored an own goal against the USA in the group stages of the 1994 tournament.

Trying to deflect a cross, Escobar succeeded only in volleying the ball into his own net, condemning Colombia to defeat and, ultimately, elimination.

Just 10 days later, Escobar was gunned down outside a bar in his hometown, his shooting supposedly revenge for his own goal which had caused criminal gambling syndicates to lose money.

His funeral was attended by 120,000 people. He was 27.
