The Spanish third division game between Quintanar del Rey and Toledo ended 3-3, however the hosts were awarded with a goal that clearly never was.

A Quintanar player lashed a shot from distance which hit the underside of the bar and then safely be cleaned up by the opposition defense.

Without a single appeal about the ball crossing the line had been made by the Quintanar players, the match continued after the Toledo goalkeeper collected the loose ball.

But, for reasons known only to himself, the referee decided to award the goal.


The incident was very similar to the infamous ghost goal from Reading vs Watford a few years back.
