VIDEO: The worst refereeing blunder of all time?

Football match

The match was Quintanar del Rey against Toledo in the third division of Spanish football, the decision is to award a bizarre phantom goal.

There have been some shocking decisions at all levels of football throughout the history of the game but the mistake by the referee in this third division game is something else.

For any football novices out there, a phantom goal is when the referee awards a goal despite the fact the ball hasn’t actually gone in.

The slightest thing can affect the referee, maybe the ripple of the net, maybe the angle he’s standing at here but the goal he awarded in this Spanish third division game has to be seen to be believed.

Quintanar del Rey were losing 3-1 with only a couple of minutes left to play and the goal allowed them to draw the match back to 3-2 before grabbing a late equaliser, much to the anger of Toledo players and staff.

Watch the amazing decision in our video below;
