On October 13, 2013 when Ethiopia Vs. Nigeria was playing for the World Cup 2014 qualifier , one of Ethiopia's goal was denied/rejected by referee because he ruled out the ball was saved by Nigerian player #2. But as the photo and video shows the ball was saved after it cross the goal line. According to football/soccer long standing rule and FIFA's guidelines, it is pure 100% goal. Now we are asking FIFA's governing body to review the video, picture and eye witnesses and award the goal to team Ethiopia.
According to Football Law #10 which states as follows, Ethiopia had a genuine goal.
Law 10: The Method of Scoring Goal Scored:
A goal is scored when the whole of the ball crosses the whole of the
goalline between the posts and crossbar, provided there is no
infringement such as offside, a foul or handball. The team
that scores the most goals wins the match. If the number of goals scored
between the two sides is equal at the end of a match, it is a draw. When competition rules require that there must be a winner, the outcome will be decided by either:
- Away goals rule- Extra-time- Penalty kicks.
