Nicklas Bendtner produced the most ridiculous offside call at end of Arsenal win at Dortmund

In all the euphoria of Arsenal’s 1-0 win at Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday evening, a bizarre incident at the end of second half injury time has been all but forgotten.

In the 93rd minute, with four minutes of injury time to play, Mesut Ozil won Arsenal a free-kick by the corner flag – in pretty much the perfect position for a side holding a 1-0 lead.

Cue Nicklas Bendtner who sidled up to Ozil, ten minutes after replacing Olivier Giroud up front for the Arsenal.

The Danish striker plays the ball forward – surely he should have knocked it back or sideways to Ozil – and the linesman, who could not have had a better view flagged for offside.

Many have and will argue that Ozil was behind the ball which lays the blame at the feet of the lino – but the big Danish striker should surely have not left anything to chance!

Had Dortmund gone up the other end and equalised, there would have been plenty of rage about this ridiculous piece of football.

Seconds later, Robert Lewandowski was claiming for a penalty!

The Russian commentator on the video enjoyed this!
