Awoniyi's Goal

Post by blueangel »

Awoniyi made a Powerful heading that struck the upper bar, appeared to bounce in the goal just beyond the goal line and incredibly the Egyptian Goal Keeper saved it.
.... WAS THAT A GOAL .......

We were also Lucky . We easily could have had a Penalty called against us via Moses Simon

According to FIFA rules the ball has to cross the goal line to be counted as a goal. Saves by goalkeepers arenot counted as a goal. Hope this helps :thumb:

It didn't cross the line from the replays that were shown.

Sorry, i meant the Egyptian Goalie Caught It

Awoniyi and another player thought it crossed the line.
Maybe Egypt got lucky there and we got lucky for the penalty not called against us .

That was definitely not a PK against us, the foul happened outside the 18 yard box from all replays I saw, Egypt deserved a FK though.

No they don’t it’s a fast one they are trying to play, you are trying to go for the free ball but they know they are between you and the ball and will just stop thereby body checking you then they fall over, that should be given the other way…
