Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper Gorka Iraizoz had almost stunned the entire world with an injury time equaliser from a corner during their Saturday night encounter against Malaga, only if the goal stood.
Malaga had earlier grabbed the lead with a 35th goal minute from Malaga grabbed the lead through Liverpool loanee Luis Alberto from a penalty spot kick after Roque Santa Cruz was brought down by Iraizoz inside the box.
It was during the dying minutes of the game when Athletic Club had won a free-kick, and Iraizoz came up all the way into the opposition penalty area. Miracuralously, he headed home the free-kick, only for referee Antonio Mateu to deny it.
Despite having their two players sent off, Malaga were lucky to take the three points from the match.
Goal that was ruled out
Was it the right decision?
The following three angles will show you that the goal that was disallowed should have stood as neither Iraizoz or anyone interfering with the play is offside.
