Michael Heal of port jervis , ny usa asks...

Normaly the credit ( if you can call it that ha-ha)goes to the person who made the own goal, but the other team will get the goal in the books.

It may have been simply an issue of tradition, but my understanding of "own goal" credit was that it was given to the player on the scoring team who last touched the ball (before their opponent "helped" it into the goal.)
