Thread: Bale credited with goal against Ukraine.

  1. #1

    Bale credited with goal against Ukraine.

    Upon review, Gareth Bale has been credited with the goal that took Wales to the World Cup Finals - not sure about that, but it looks better than us getting there through an own goal.

    Give it to the Ukrainians, so he doesn't get a goal bonus

    Typical, I have just put my framed poster up on the landing, giving Yarmelenko full billing for the OG.

    That's own goal all day long. You just have to look at the keepers reaction - it takes a complexly different trajectory after it comes off the Ukrainian. I think if an opposition player is static and it comes off them for a goal fair enough - give it to the attacker. But Yamelenko consciously moved towards the ball and stuck his head on it and wrong footed the keeper.

    I'm not 100% convinced it would have gone in if no one else had touched it.
    Definitely an own goal in my book.
