Italian side concedes while celebrating disallowed goal

Don’t hold team celebration on touchline until you’re sure goal has been given

A Sicilian league match between Mazara and Villabate was reduced to farce when Villabate scored a goal while Mazara were still celebrating a disallowed effort at the other end. Mazara’s volleyed goal looked to a legitimate, but was for some reason chalked off. With half the team celebrating on the touchline, Villabate broke down the other end and scored a highly controversial goal.

All hell then broke lose, with players and staff ‘discussing’ matters with the referee and each other for several minutes. The ref was eventually forced to abandon the match and leave with a police escort.
