Slowdown please, these misjudgements to see and review
The unpredictable is part of football. “Just like the mistakes”, you will claim most purists of the “beautiful game”. But we would have done well with these decisions taken by some men in black.
A bad pass, an appreciation of erroneous path, a badly brushed ball too supported tackle … There are thousands of game events that can change the course of a meeting. But those that the fans of the aggrieved team have the most horror come from arbitration errors. Whistle blows that will sound forever false. While video arbitration is still in the experimental phase (as well as in the middle of the debate), we have listed some examples of violations of the regulations that have so much talked about the planet foot. They are all in the box of “Fucking disgrace” category created by Didier Drogba, without causing the same consequences. And of course, as you can imagine, we could not trace all the blunders in the history of the ball …
PSG VS Lille, 7 February 2017 (2-1): “Lu” breaks the line
Breaker of limits, Lucas started the action bringing the second Parisian goal by being offside, and finished it as it had begun. A mistake will tell the Parisians.
Hoffenheim VS Bayer Leverkusen, 18 October 2013 (1-2): The “Phantomtor” of Kiessling

Germany VS England, 27 June 2010 (4-1): The goal-line would have seen everything
The Mannschaft leads by 2 goals to 1 in this Round of 16 of the South African World when Frank Lampard realizes a perfect lob on Neuer. The ball touches the crossbar, passes the line, comes to say hello to the helm, and lodges in the gloves of the German doorman. It had to be an equalizing goal …
France VS Ireland, 18 November 2009 (1-1, ap): Thierry does not laugh
In the qualifying round at the 2010 World Cup, Thierry Henry knocked out Ireland on an action that went around the world in 80 seconds.
Manchester United VS Tottenham, 4 January 2005 (0-0): The King of the Dumpling
When it happens that big teams are brooded by arbitration, it always makes a media buck not possible. And this blunder of United Roy Carroll’s goalkeeper, who should have offered the Spurs victory, is a perfect example. Even Pedro Mendes, then more than 40 meters from the goalkeeper’s cages when he let go of his shot, would have seen the ball cross the line.
