In which Criciuma defender Fabio Ferreira gets back brilliantly to deny Chapecoense from going 2-0 in the Brazilian Campeonato Catarinense by shanking one clear from off the line, only for his momentum to send him hurtling him into the back of the net and pull the entire goalpost out of it’s moorings…

For the record, it took over half-an-hour for the goal to be replaced and returned to its upright position.

    They weren’t standing up straight in the first place. A ‘did the ball cross the line?’ scenario could get complicated

    @glt: How so? The painted line is not crooked, doesn’t matter at what angle it hits the post, just as long as it fully crosses the line.
