A referee of a German amateur soccer game confused goalposts in perhaps the most unique officiating gaffe we’ve seen in a long time.
Altona striker Patrick Westermann unleashed an excellent half-volley from 30 yards out, dumbfounding the Marschlande keeper who just managed to palm it away for a corner. Or so he thought. Unfortunately, with the game being played on an (american) football pitch, the ball rebounded off the goal and back into play. Mistaking the yellow upright for the goal’s crossbar, the referee amazingly let the goal stand!
Weird, but a lesson learned.
