And finally… the best/worst of 2015

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

We’ve been spoilt with And finally this year, with 2015 providing us with a cornucopia of defensive mishaps, goalkeeping blunders and astonishing own goals from across world football. We’ve picked out our favourite five of the year.

1) And finally… Rob Earnshaw’s field goal

 

2) And finally… stumbles and strops

3) And finally… from far and wide

4) And finally… it was the Brest of times, it was the worst of times

5) And finally… defenders making decisions #427

We regularly document the incompetence of professional footballers with And finally… but this week LA FC’s Mohamed El Munir shows us that extreme competence, with a fantastic recovering tackle, is just as memorable.
