A German amateur match shows why football shouldn’t be played on an American football pitch
- May 22, 2013
A hilariously bad mistake from a referee lead to a shocking goal during an German amateur match last Friday.
Altona 93 beat Vier- und Marschlande 3-1 last weekend in Hamburg’s Oberliga division, yet the opening goal in the match was an utter disgrace.
After a long punt downfield from a goal kick, the ball fell to Altona 93 striker Patrick Westermann 30-yards from goal. Westermann went on to smash a half-volley effort towards the Vier- und Marschlande net, however visiting keeper Marcel Kindler made a super one handed stop to push the ball over the bar.
Then came the craziness.
Playing on an American football pitch, Kindler’s save directed the ball onto crossbar of the American football goal, and the ball ended up rebounding back into play.
Incredibly the referee waved play on, and Altona 93 centre-forward Beytullah Atug capitalised on the official’s mistake to smash the ball into the net.
