Jonathan Woodgate signed for Real Madrid in August 2004 for a transfer fee of £13.4 million which came as a huge surprise of many people in the football world due to his frequent absences through injury at his previous clubs, he was even injured at the time of the transfer.

Woodgate did not make any appearances for Real Madrid in his first season in Spain, eventually making his debut on September 22nd 2005, in a league match against Athletic Bilbao.

The game did not go well for him after he managed to score an own goal, get booked and eventually get sent off in what was arguably the worst debut in football history.
