    I’m with the goalie on this one.
    When France played Brazil in the Quarters Finals at Mexico 86, something similar happened when a goal was given in the penalty shootout. I was under the impression that when the ball hits the post and comes out, it is effectively a deadball… so when rebounding in off the keeper, the goal doesn’t stand.
