Ghost goals appear to be en vogue in football at the moment.
Hoffenheim have been denied a replay with Bayer Leverkusen after conceding a phantom goal, which was headed through the side-netting by striker Stefan Kiessling.
Watford then scored a perfectly good goal against Brighton last night only to see play waved on. Fernando Forestieri looked to have put the Championship side 2 — 0 up, after a shocking clearance attempt [see 0:58 in video below], but referee Keith Hill and his officials were not convinced.
Speaking after his side eventually drew 1 — 1, Hornets boss Gianfranco Zola was raging. ”After today I tell you ‘yes’ [there should be goalline technology],” he told Sky Sports. “I understand the costs are high but, certainly, we have been penalised today.”
