That was so blatantly dodgy but the goal was disallowed. 20 mins later a defender booted a cross into his own net. The first time didn't work so they made sure they scored an own goal in the end.

How comes it was disallowed?

Wish I'd seen this game now.

Surely it would have been well known by now that the game was under scrutiny. Sounds like this was very fishy.

Just seen the goalkeeper's own goal that was disallowed.

100% deliberate push in for me.

This stinks in my opinion.

Just seen the BBC video. The goals looked fine, bar some poor defending.

That is so funny, and really the needs to be looked at.

Not sure it could have been anymore obvious. I wonder what the keepers reaction was like when the goal was disallowed?

Thanks Aidan. They did show it on the BBC site, but not that view. Even with the push, it does look very dodgy.

I didn't see the o.g. that was allowed but it seems to me like they had to provide an own goal at some stage of the game.

The own goal was not blatant cheating, imo. The ball was more or less on the line already.

I only seen the goalie incident, and that was shockingly blatant, imo

The own goal looked legit to me.

The disallowed goal did look strange but I wouldn't say there was anything odd about the actual own goal. If it wasn't for the first one I don't think anyone would be querying it.
