Barbados vs Grenada (Shell Caribbean Cup 1994)

The organizers of the tournament had chosen an unusual variant of the golden goal rule, which meant that the first goal scored in extra-time not only won the match, but also counted as double. The final score was 4−2, but only one goal was scored after the regular 90 minutes because of the rule. Barbados started the match needing to win by a margin of at least two goals to qualify for the final tournament. When Grenada scored late on in normal time to bring the scoreline to 2−1, Barbados deliberately scored an own goal to force extra-time, where they could get the two-goal winning margin they needed thanks to the unconventional golden goal rule.
