WATCH: Fan invades soccer game, disrupts injury time goal, referee allows it – CBS sports.com (blog)
Soccer is 11 vs. 11. The only time it isn’t is if there are red cards, it’s youth soccer or if it is being played indoors, on a beach or in a park.
In Honduras on Sunday night, it was 12 vs. 11 with a fan on the field, but that didn’t stop the referee from letting it slide. Down 2-1 in added time, Olimpia drew level against Motagua through Roger Rojas. The problem? A fan was on the field with the ball, right next to the action, and he put the ball in the goal. The ref let it all go, Motagua argued the call and nothing happened. Take a look.
Now, refs are supposed to stop the match when there is a pitch invader. But maybe he just didn’t notice this one until it was too late. The guy wasn’t directly involved in the action, but Motagua has a reason to be mad.
Maybe it’s time to boost the security down there.
