Football Manager video game legend and Czech goalkeeper Jan Lastuvka of Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk in the Ukrainian Premier League scored a stunning 75-meter strike. Except it was disallowed for minor contact in an off-the-ball clash.
Despite the heated protests from Dnipro players and coaching staff alike, the referee was unmoved.
Even with the discounted goal, Dnipro secured a 2-1 victory over Zolya. But the real loser in this one is the day’s referee, who must now forever live with the fact that he denied Lastuvka one of the highlights of his entire career.
