Fans Give Goal!
Submitted By: Ric Huffman

I was living in Brazil and I went to see a youth championship where the U-20 championships were being played in Rio. The Brazilians were in no danger of losing the game, but they created one of the most fantastic goals that i have ever seen, and the funny thing is that the ball never went across the goal line. From about the top of the arc a midfielder shot the ball and it went right off of the cross bar and straight down, every spectator saw it as a close call, but no goal. One of the strikers attacked that player as if he had scored the game winning goal in the World Cup finals. Pretty soon all of the fans and players from that particular team were going nuts and the ref did not know what to do. He took the bait hook, line and sinker, it was a goal..
