Would send e-mail in case this early guess is right but your's is hidden on your profile.

Was this pele's goal during the film "Escape to Victory". I recall the germans not cheering at first but appluading by the end.

Was it an onsides goal? He scored against his own goalie, his team groaned, and then a few (of the rivals) started clapping because they now had a point?

Did the goal end up counting (for the other team)? or was the point removed? Did the refees review the play overturn the decision to reward the rival team with a point?

Did his teammates cheer? Did the rival team cheer? Did his coach cheer? Did the rivals' coach cheer? Did his supporters in the stands cheer? Did the rivals' supporters in the stands cheer?

Was the game rigged in any way? Did he score against his own team on purpose?

Did the opposing team just do the same thing moments before, and thus he was being a good sport in "levelling" the score (or difference)?

The away goal rule is used in some competitions, where instead of meeting once, the teams play each other twice, once at each of the home grounds. In the event of a draw after the two matches, away goals count as double. My reasoning was that he had scored a goal (for some gentlemanly, sportsman like reason) which would not stop his team from going on in the competition, and yet natural justice had been satisfied.

was natural justice served?
is the match a one off or part of a competition? a friendly? League? group stage? elimination rounds?

Oh OH! if we are at the group stage... does this own goal mean a potentially easy route through the elimination stage... eg England score an own goal so that they meet Spain and not Brazil in the next round?
is a record involved?

is the match a one off or part of a competition? a friendly? League? group stage? elimination rounds? It was in a cup competition, and the game was to decide who progressed to the next round

Oh OH! if we are at the group stage... does this own goal mean a potentially easy route through the elimination stage... eg England score an own goal so that they meet Spain and not Brazil in the next round? No, but excellent tactical thinking!

Hmm... more to it...So more happens to the losing team than being nocked out of the competition? more happens to the winning team than progressing to the next round?

Is justice served in another way than making the game fairer? ie previous meetings relevant?

Hmm... more to it...So more happens to the losing team than being nocked out of the competition? more happens to the winning team than progressing to the next round? Neither, but there's a little more to deciding who goes through than simply who wins. Perhaps that should have been a yope or yesish.

Is justice served in another way than making the game fairer? ie previous meetings relevant? No to both

Ok. let's examine this... call the teams Chelsea and Man U... Chelsea the team that scores an own goal.

Chelsea could lose and still go through? could draw and still go through? must win?

Same for Man U...
results of any other matches relvant?

does scoring an own goal guarantee that Chelsea progress? that Man U progress

Just to clarify: is this a straight knockout format tournament? Or does it include groups or such, like the world cup? Are we at the quarter-finals? Semi-finals? Pre-quarter-final stage? Would the own-goal scoring team play the same team in the next round if they won this match 2-0? Is the tournament linked in some way to another tournament, like the Cup Winner's Cup or such? Is this a one-leg match? Are aggregates relevant? Is goal difference relevant? Would the losing team in this match be angry or feel that gamesmanship had been used? Does the side in question actually WANT to go through to the next round? If, after the own goal, the other team scored, making it 2-2, would that ruin the plan of the own-goal scorer? Was the own goal scored in the dying minutes of the game? If you were an official, would you consider changing the rules of the tournament in the light of this own goal?

Chelsea could lose and still go through? could draw and still go through? must win? No...its more that they could win yet still not go through

Same for Man U... They could lose and still go through, I think
results of any other matches relvant? Indirectly, yes

does scoring an own goal guarantee that Chelsea progress? that Man U progress It doesn't guarantee anything, but makes it more likely that Chelsea progress

Woodworm
Just to clarify: is this a straight knockout format tournament? Or does it include groups or such, like the world cup? Are we at the quarter-finals? Semi-finals? Pre-quarter-final stage? To be honest I’m not sure-basically one of the teams playing in this match will go through, the other will not. Both teams want to go through.
Would the own-goal scoring team play the same team in the next round if they won this match 2-0? No, but who they will be playing if they get through is not relevant
Is the tournament linked in some way to another tournament, like the Cup Winner's Cup or such? No
Is this a one-leg match? The teams will only play each other once…is that what this means? Are aggregates relevant? No Is goal difference relevant? Yes Would the losing team in this match be angry or feel that gamesmanship had been used? They might well feel annoyed, yes Does the side in question actually WANT to go through to the next round? They both do
If, after the own goal, the other team scored, making it 2-2, would that ruin the plan of the own-goal scorer? After the own goal the score was 2-2 (remember that before the own goal, the own-goal-scorer was winning 2-1). If the other team then scored, making it 3-2 to them, this would ruin the own-goal-scorer’s plan
Was the own goal scored in the dying minutes of the game? Yes If you were an official, would you consider changing the rules of the tournament in the light of this own goal? Possibly, though the rules seem pretty stupid to me anyway

Just so I have it right...

A draw (2-2) makes it more likely that Chelsea progress? A victory (2-1 or 3-2) makes it less likely, but still possible?

How many other matches are involved? (consider list of numbers posted)

A draw (2-2) makes it more likely that Chelsea progress? Correct A victory (2-1 or 3-2) makes it less likely, but still possible? if one of these were the score, then Chelsea would definitely not go through. However, there are other winning scores which would mean Chelsea definitely went through (so one of these scores would be more desirable for Chelsea than the draw)
How many other matches are involved? (consider list of numbers posted)Could be any number, but goal difference is relevant, so previous matches are what made the goal difference what it is

I am assuming you mean the scores at the end of the game here, and that the score listed first is the one that Chelsea finished with. If you mean something else, I will repost the answers
1-0? No
1-1? Possibly...it depends on something else

So is it the case that if chelsea win by just one goal then they go out?
If they draw they go into a playoff for the last spot in the next round?
If they win by more than one goal they qualify automatically?

Was it that the penalty shoot-out would have allowed them to win by two clear goals, if each penalty counts as a goal (which I believe it does)? So let's say that Chelsea need to win by two clear goals: 2-1 sees them go out, but 2-2 allows them a slim chance if they can save two (or more) penalties and end up winning, say, 7-5, 6-4 or better?

This is very very close-they did need to win by two clear goals, but they didn't get a goal per penalty

Was the outcome of the shootout deemed to count as two (or more) goals, whoever won and by whatever margin?

********************SPOILER**********************
Two teams (Chelsea and Man U as we named them but actually Barbados and Grenada) were playing in a cup competition. Barbados needed to win by two goals (or more) in oder to progress to the next round. With 5 minutes to go, Barbados were winning 2-1 (and therefore headed out of the competition as they needed to win by two goals). Realising that they were unlikely to score against the well-defended Grenada in 5 minutes, they turned round and scored an own goal to bring the game to penalties (because of the rule stating that if a game went to penalties, the winner would be awarded a 2-0 victory regardless of the score before penalties, Barbados figured they had at least a chance to win if it went to penalties). Grenada realised this and attempted to score an own goal themsleves, but Barbados began defending Grenada's goal. For the last few minutes of the game, the spectators then got to watch Barbados defending both goals, while Grenada tried to score at either end, and goalkeepers tried to throw the ball into their own net. Granada failed to score an own goal so the game went to penalties which Barbados won, thus giving them a 2-0 victory and allowing them to qualify for the next round.

(Oh, and in case it wasn't clear, the crowd would have groaned as he scored the own goal, until the cleverer ones realised the plan and began cheering)

Hahaha, I never even thought of that part: that the other side would then start trying to score an own goal themselves. I wish I'd seen the game.

How on earth would you stop a goalie throwing the ball into his own net? Priceless.

I don't know...I wasn't there or anything, I found the story on snopes.com and thought it deserved a puzzle!
