Astonishing. How can none of the officials see the ball go in the goal??

 I don't know...usually the other teams heads going down and them stopping doing anything and all the scorer's teammates running towards him is a bit of a giveaway that it went in, as well.

 You may be able to find it elsewhere. Freddie Sears goal for Crystal Palace...that wasn't a goal.

Basically the goal post system is fitted with a back beam of some sort (low to the ground) and the ball hits perfectly off it and back out. The Ref and Lines man think it is a goal kick, but the ball actually goes 4-5 feet into the goal. As you can imagine...a bit of an uproar! Palace manager is NOT happy. They lost 1-0.

it looked like the other team was telling the refs it went in as well?
