Why isn’t there goal line technology in the Asian Champions League?
That lead to a shocking call on Tuesday in the match between Shanghai SIPG and Muang Thong, as the hosts were denied a goal despite the fact the ball went over the line.
The ‘goal’ came in rather ugly circumstances.
Dario Conca’s odd corner style was horribly dealt with by the Thai keeper, which ended up with Lü Wenjun scoring with a very low diving header.
A Muang Thong defender was stood behind the goalline, by they only cleared the ball after it cross the white line.
Terribly, the goal wasn’t given.
Shanghai SIPG went on to win the game 3-0.
