This is one of the saddest videos of 2010 as lovers of golazos were denied a 65-yard beauty because of the anal nature of a referee.
The setting for the video is Brazil, the Group 4 Copa Paulista match between Palmeiras and Atletico Sorocaba B which the visitors won 2-1. As for the match facts, Palmeiras took the lead through striker Gilsinho, but the Roosters fought back through Luan and Sandro to turn the match on its head.
Then we arrive to the final seconds of the match. The ball arrived to Atletico midfielder Leandro on the right hand side and in side his own half and, after taking one touch to steady himself, he decided to take aim at goal. His shot sailed in the sky before eventually dropping spot-on target where home keeper Rafael German made a complete hash of things and allowed the ball to fall in the net.
But no goal was given.
Instead the players were forced to trundle off the pitch as anal referee Roney Prado Bustamante had blown his whistle to call time on proceedings while the shot was hurtling towards the net.
Leandro’s 65-yarder that never was can be seen here.
