Chelsea Scores Second Goal Against Spurs In FA Cup Semi-Final; Did It Cross The Line Or Not? [VIDEO]

In the FA Cup semi-final between Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, Chelsea was awarded a second goal in controversial circumstances after referee Martin Atkinson ruled that the ball had crossed the line.

However in the above video, you can see that the ball was nowhere near to crossing the line.

Plus, in the lead-up to the goal, John Terry pushes a few Tottenham players to get to the ball. A free kick should have been awarded to Tottenham. Instead, the goal was awarded.

Yet again, it’s another example of how FIFA needs to accelerate the implementation of goal-line technology. Incidents like these have been happening for decades. Yet, referees can only call what they see, while everyone else — including the fans in the stadium and at home can see the incident on replay from multiple camera angles.

In a match where there is so much on the line, it’d be a shame if that “ghost goal” would be the difference between the winning and losing side.
