Barbados needed to win by two, but they were only up one. So instead of scoring in the traditional way they intentionally kicked in an own goal to get to extra time. That way, they'd have a chance at a golden goal that for some reason was worth two goals instead of just the usual one. Grenada spent three minutes trying to score on either net to keep themselves from getting knocked out, and the mayhem is still worth talking about today.
