The Curious penalty goal is denied

The Curious penalty goal is denied

Newcastle United wins the duel against FC Fulham shortly before the end. However, there is already a stir when Aleksandar Mitrovic hits a strange penalty – but the goal is not recognized.

The curious scene in the Premier League!

There was a rare faux pas in the duel between Newcastle United and Fulham FC. After Kieran Trippier fouled Jamaican Bobby de Cordova-Reid, the visitors from London were awarded a penalty in the 67th minute when the score was 0-0.

Serb Aleksandar Mitrovic’s big chance to put Fulham ahead on a surprise third.
He did that too – only in an irregular way! When the shot was taken, the striker slipped with his supporting leg – and shot himself. Since a so-called “double contact” is not allowed when taking a penalty kick, referee Robert Jones had to disallow the goal.

Ex-BVB star punishes faux pas coldly

Instead of the lead, it was a goalless draw – and it should get even worse for the guests. Ex-BVB star Alexander Isak broke the ban on the home side in the 89th minute and St. James Park shook.

Newcastle maintained their position in the top flight of the Premier League with a narrow win over Fulham.

Similar penalty situations have already occurred in Germany. For example, 1. FC Köln failed dramatically at Hamburger SV in the DFB Cup last season because Florian Kainz shot himself on penalties in the decisive and final penalty.

Leverkusen’s Moussa Diaby also missed the point in this strange way in the Bundesliga in Bochum.
